Fun project using Hadoop and Twitter streaming API:
During the keynote, I quickly created an Amazon Micro EC2 instance, tapped into the Twitter Streaming API, and began downloading tweets containing the hashtag #hw2010.
After filtering out a few Halloween tweets (get it? #hw2010?), about 1,500 tweets remained, respectable for a one-day event.
For my (real-time) Hadoop World in Tweets I’ve used ☞ Storify and my eyes. Not as scalable as Hadoop though.
