I'm looking for a developer that can develop a piece of software to gather Tweets with a specific hashtag or which are being sent to a specific user.
The application ideally should be written in VB6 so it can be integrated in existing software. But I understand that it might not be so easy to do that, so VB.net will do as well, it just means that the rest of the software will have to be converted at a later point in time.
In order to do this, you will have to use oAuth and the Twitter Streaming API.
The software is not dedicated to one specific user or hashtag. It would have to allow you to fill in a hashtag and then gather all the tweets that contain this hashtag and insert it into a database. It should also extract some information of the user, such as the Twitter-ID, their real name, their loction and their profile picture. In fact, the profile picture should be best if it's downloaded in a specific folder to which a reference is added in the database.
As a database I would like to use the simplest system possible. This software has to work in cojunction with other software and will be installed on different computers. So perhaps an access database or something that is easy to install.
The source-code should be well documented so I can make changes if needed.
If you think you're up for the job, let me know.
