After a number of requests, I've tidied up this Quartz Compotision overlay that will display a Twitter search (for example, you can search for "@yourusername" to find all of the tweets that mention a particular username).
Here's the file: http://www.inklen.com/download/172/TwitterXMLFeed_MixEmergency.zip
Download. Unzip. Edit (to add your username - you'll need Quartz Composer for this). Save. And then load it into MixEmergency in the Quartz Composition Overlay section.
I've changed a few things:
- Change the positioning system (positioned relative to the bottom, so you don't lose it on 16:9 screens).
- Added a customisable time limit, currently defaulting to showing Tweets within the last 12 hours.
- Colours are now more easily customised.
- The text will now look clearer (there was an issue with the unit sizes).
The original file was created by this MixEmergency user: http://twitter.com/vjxplicit ....so maybe "follow" him if you end up using it, and send him a tweet to say thanks!
