Quick and Dirty Twitter keyword monitoring github.com
I have been trying to tackle this for a couple of days now and finally managed to do it. I needed something to keep me posted on some twitter posts and found out that there were some Apps on AppStore that would charge you .99 EUR per keyword. Nah. I Installed Prowl for USD 2.99 instead so I can get any notifications I can take, straight from a Ruby daemon. Then I just deployed this to a server... Thankfully we have such great gems as ruby-prowl and tweetstream and it made my life a lot easier when putting this project together. Yes, it's dirty but may be helpful to some other Ruby folks so here you have it - intweet.
