Project Description

I would like to recreate the animation in this URL:

[url removed, login to view]

The animation takes a SEARCH term, and displays an animation of the tweets related to that search term. The user can select between 1) Letter by Letter, 2) Rotation, and 3) Tag Cloud Animations.

Ideally, I would like to recreate the three, but If it is too complicated, Tag Cloud is my top choice.

As far as I have seen in the code, the program uses a flash file called [url removed, login to view] (which could be reversed engineered with a program such as SFWEditor or something like that), and uses a JavaScript library (swfobject) to easily embed adobe flash content onto web pages.

Tweeter stream----->swfobject----->[url removed, login to view]

I do not need an interface to the twitter API since I already have that; I just need to pass the stream of tweets (or short sentences in a database) to the animation program.

I do need to control the speed of the visualization, the choice of colors and the number of tweets (or sentences in a queue) to display, choice of full screen or not, etc.

At completion, the developer should provide all the source files and documentation so I can further customize the program.

For the right developer with knowledge of JavaScript, Flash, and reverse engineering SWF files, this should be a relatively easy project.

Bonus points for a developer who is also familiar with the twitter API, since there might be some issues with interfacing the twitter stream with the swfobject and the flash animation.
