This large screen displaying animated tweets from concert goers could be seen in lobbies of venues where musical artists Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Inglesias performed their 2012 tour. Tweets queried by hash tag would appear to scroll in from the top down into the background until they transformed into twinkling stars that drifted randomly across the screen behind new incoming tweets.
We were part of a small team assembled to complete this app and a UI so operators could configure it on the fly (updating the hash tags, switching backgrounds, changing the marquee, etc.) in just two weeks time. It was furiously developed using jQuery, Twitter API 1.0, animated SVG’s and run full screen on Mozilla Firefox for its cross-platform support and superior Gecko rendering engine.
