Live Twitter stream? Yes please

Let’s say you’re setting up some kind of event and you want to show a live Twitter stream. Let’s say you don’t have time to develop your own solution, you just have a cool hashtag. What do you do?

First of all you may think if it’s a good idea.

I’d take the risk. I’d use Twitterfall because it allows a good combination of lists, searches, geolocation and exclusions. It also lets you decide speed and size of the falling tweets.

Need a previous moderation? You can also use TweetChat, a service with log-in authentication which allows to block spammers and undesired messages.

Similar tools:

  • Monitter – a real time Twitter search tool that enables you to monitor a set of keywords on Twitter.
  • Gigatweet – displays the number of tweets since inception of Twitter and offers data by keyword.
