Oh so close...

Project Update

Things are really getting there with the deamon script.  Big thanks to the TweetStream project for making it so easy.  I've setup a Redis entry to house a list of Twitter IDs to follow and just need to add a list of terms to track, which I think is possible.

Had to upgrade to Ruby 1.9.1 in order to use the *variable magic in method arguments.  That works gangbusters...

Also, had to filter some of the tweets that come through the stream.  I guess with the Streaming API it sends retweets and user mentions when using the filter stream.  I don't think those would look good in the project.

Party On!
