This app uses the Twitter streaming API to track and display (in a map and a stream) selected Twitter users. At the Seattle Times, we're using it to respond to May Day festivities.
Running this app
While developing, you need two Bash shells. One to run Grunt, and another to run the
index.js file that actually subscribes to the firehose. You'll also need to get access tokens from Twitter and load them into your
auth.json file. Not for the faint of heart.
