This is a quick app to estimate the current frequency of tweets about a particular subject It searches twitter for a term and stores: a) the current time b) the number of tweets returned (limted to 25) c) the time spanned by these tweets ... which lets you work out a rough idea of how frequently it is being mentioned Config: - httparty & sinatra gems - list your terms in _terms.txt (term logs are named based on line numbers, so be sure to append, not edit, this file) There are two parts to the app: 1. Capture ruby capture.rb - this will search twitter for the terms in the _terms.txt file. 2. Server ruby server.rb - this launches a sintra app which lists the terms, the number of times they have been queried and gives a link to the relevant log file
