Forum Contest | Create a Twitter Widget0:49 with Nick Pettit
In this video Nick Pettit introduces the most recent Forum Contest topic, create a Twitter widget.
Well, hey everybody I'm NIck Pettit, @nickrp on Twitter, and
on this week's forum contest, you are going to build a Twitter widget.
What is a Twitter widget, you ask?
Well, it's a small little application that you might embed.
Onto a web page.
Now, to do this, you're going to need to use the Twitter API.
The Twitter API has a few examples of widgets that are already available for
you to use.
But, you need to create your own.
You can do whatever you want for
this form contest as long as it uses the Twitter API.
And has a nice design to go with it.
For example, you might pull your favorite tweets from celebrities or
you might analyze Twitter for the amount of happy faces and sad faces per hour.
For more details about this form contest,
be sure to check out the rest of this post.
