Twitter Stream API & Java lib

Hi there,

I need to process twitter stream of .. tweets.
My first idea is: use java lib (one of them: to grab a whole flow, then use Max to filter, refine and display/produce sounds.

Does someone make it with Twitter4J or Twitter Client ?

I’m interested by any experiences with that.

This is a personal installation project.

Twitter4J seems pretty well documented. I suspect you could get it off the ground via Jython or Clojure without too much effort.

I am sure you will have already looked at this but just in case:

Thanks @Nick. Yes, yusuke seems to have build an impressive tool.
@yantantethra, thanks a lot this is a working example of how to use Twitter4j in Max !

Testing that in the next days..
This is a new and personal installation around twitter, visuals & sounds. Hoping to be able to exhibit it in a nice place :)

I’m sure you’ve also already had a read through: which implements a slightly different part Twitter4J in mxj.

hello @freeman999, yes I did. thanks for the reference btw.

all your answers point me to Twitter4j (this was more exactly my question)
Yusuke, afaik, works for twitter even if his lib is unofficial.

I’ll dig that in the next days as it is a personal project I need to implement for end of year.
