The Econsultancy Twitter experiment

Twitter Pack by CarrotCreative via FlickrAbout an hour ago we implemented an experiment to display all tweets featuring the word ‘Econsultancy’ on our homepage, something we've had in mind for a few months.

The ‘widget’ was patched together in-house and simply searches for ‘Econsultancy’ via the excellent Twitter API, then aggregates these tweets into a feed. There are a few improvements we have planned for the code (we've just inserted a timestamp).

We planned on adding the feed to the sidebar in the blog, but decided instead to debut this on our homepage.
