Making sense of the voices on twitter
Photograph: Day one hundred and twelve by Dustim Diaz (http://www.flickr.com/photos/polvero/3466964233/)

Tedx Mumbai was an independently organized TED event that was held in at BlueFrog, Mumbaion 3
April 2010. Unfortunately for me, the event was held on the day before Easter, and soeven applying to attend was out. Around the same time I was dabbling with a Ruby Script to
automatically collate tweets matching a few keywords and tags. So I thought, let’s collate all the
tweets from the event and then see the event from the eyes of twitter.Some frantic coding later, my script was live on my server and I was set. Or so I thought.The very next day, halfway on the way to work I realized that I had forgotten to setup a script tomonitor the hashtag for the event. Out came my new Android phone to the rescue!! I managed toaccess my server, through Net2FTP and then copied the existing script and modified it using aweb based editor and set up the script using my control panel, all from the phone. Whew!!Net result was that I was setup, but about an hour late, so I missed out on a few tweets. I let myscripts run for the entire day as well as the next. What follows is an attempt to make some senseof the many voices out there. I do hope this bit of random craziness, gives you somethinginteresting to read.
