A lot of fuzz is being made about if tweets should be displayed at events or not. The answer is simple, Yes! And in a fancy way.
Here goes a collection of what Julius Solaris, your host, thinks are the best tools to display live tweets at events.
5. Twitter Search + Firefox + ReloadEvery
Twitter Search is the visualization tool for the nostalgic twitter user and/or retro tweep. In order to make the page refresh automatically, Install Firefox add on ReloadEvery. If you don't have Firefox probably you won't read this because your browser has crashed in the meanwhile 😉
- Suits large screens
- Neat and detailed
- Hard to read
- A bit dull, not fun.
We talked about TwitterCamp in the past. It's a damn cool project and the fact it was implemented for a BarCamp and on an opensource basis makes it even cooler.
- Highly Customizable
- Fun Interface
- Could be slow in updates from time to time
- Looks like the project is not moving on
3. Twitter Fountain
What about that! Twitter Fountain looks slick and fancy. Very design oriented and definitely relevant to image conscious events.
- Good looking Interface
- Clear and neat
- Flickr Integration
- Embed only, does not work as a standalone page or software.
Great Control with Twitterfall. You can play around with settings and have fun with customizing the experience.
- Able to opt for a good speed of refresh
- Able to display ReTweets
- Although highly customizable it still remains a bit dull
1. Visible Tweets
Visible Tweets is simply fantastic! This is what tweets at events should look like.
It's all good just go for it.
Don't see any.
