Project Description

I'm looking for a program that works specifically with Twitter.

On certain dates, Nike for example, tweets out a link at a certain time to one or more of its shoes for customers to purchase. I'd like the program to be able to click the link that was tweeted by Nike's Twitter account (as soon as it's tweeted, the speed of the program is most important) and open it up in a tab or window on google chrome. The program must be able to perform this step as quickly and efficiently as possible.

It needs to be customizable by users of the program as well. By that I mean I need to be able to customize the following:

- The username of the twitter account to monitor
- Key words to look for within a tweet

Additionally, I need this program to work with Mac OS.

Here is a more precise description. It is a repost, but edited a little bit.
The program, while running will need to complete the following:

1). Follow a twitter account i.e @NikeStore official account.

2). Recognize a incoming tweet from @NikeStore with a twitter link to the product.
(i.e. The Jordan Spizike ‘3M’ is now available [url removed, login to view])

3). Automatically open the twitter link in google chrome (i.e. [url removed, login to view] which directs the user to the [url removed, login to view] website where the sneaker is located.)

Tutorial and Instructions must be clear and concise where the customizable options are (twitter account, key words to look for)

With the example I put in step #2, the key words I want to be able to put in the program for example are words such as "Jordan Spizike 3M" and I would like the program to just automatically find the link associated with that tweet ([url removed, login to view]) and just open it.

I DO NOT need the program to add any item to my cart or do a check out process, I just need it to open the link in Google Chrome as FAST as possible the second the tweet is tweeted.

If you have anymore questions please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!
