Alex Girard home in English en Francais

Bakc on Twitter after a few months, and on reblog ideas after a few years, I wanted to experiment a small mashup to follow 25C3 conference using flickr for the pictures and twitter for the news.

It was not long to find a Sinatra project using the Flickr API: flickr-downloader from foca ad re-adapt it to fecth vairous information from Flickr and send them to the TwitPic API.

The result:

It’s downloadable and clonable on github: Flickr Twit

It’s just and experiment for the weekend, but it surely can be useful in recent world events that have primarely happened on twitter: London-Mumba├» terrorist attacks, big concert at X-Y site, weddings for a day… or to follow a group of flickr artists inside a twitter feed.

Thanks to Noah to have made TwitPic what it has become.
