TAGS Viewer allows users to browse, explore, and search a Twitter archive. As a backend, it requires Martin Hawksey’s Twitter Archive Google Spreadsheet (TAGS). TAGS provides a free, non-technical method of archiving tweets for a given hashtag, which can be particularly useful for capturing a conference’s backchannel.

This application is contained in a single HTML file and has no server dependencies, which makes it easy to host anywhere: just upload a single file (this one!) and you’re done. Or, if you don’t need to share it with anyone, just double-click the file on your hard drive to open it in your Web browser. Configuration is as simple as supplying a Google Spreadsheet URL.


Try the demo (bring your own TAGS URL) or take a look at an ongoing archive of #mla13. New: You can now specify the key of your own TAGS spreadsheet in a querystring, like so:

This means you can use the demo to display your own archive, no set up necessary!


TAGS Viewer is a JavaScript application using jQuery, Underscore.js, Moment.js, jQuery Hashchange, Bootstrap, and Sheetrock.
