Space Tweet is a visualization of the twitter stream - it uses node.js and the twitter firehose to stage a match of good vs evil: every evil tweet creates a new space invader, while each positive tweet fires a bullet of good from the space defender...

You will need both node.js and npm installed to get Space Tweet running locally.
If you have those, just cd into the root of this repo and run:
$ npm install .
boom! all server dependencies installed...
RUNNING THIS LOCALLY
Once you've got everything installed, make sure to update the config.json with your twitter username and password! Then:
sudo node server.js
this will start up space tweet on port 3000... so go to your browser:
hopefully you should see space tweet!! hooray!
