Twitter and hashtags

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

We're trying to figure out how we can create a flash file for the dynamic image server, which outputs tweets with a certain twitter hashtag. Outputting tweets from a certain user is a lot easier and we already have that working, but it seems outputting an hashtag is a lot more difficult.

 

Any experiences? Thx in advance.

OK, so the forum engine munged that URL, trying to be helpful. Let's see if it will make it rhough without the leading http part

 

search.twitter.com/search.json?q=#watchout&count=5

 

The first q parameter reads "percent", "two", "three", followed by the word watchout, where "percent", "two", "three" is the URL-encoded hash (pound) symbol #.

Nope, the forum engine ate that one too. Again the first query parameter need to have the hash symbol URL-encoded as a percent sign immediately followed by the digits 23.
