I was a little bored sitting in the airport at 5am, so I thought that it would be fun to use Yahoo Pipes to help make sure that I didn’t miss any important sxsw tweets during my trip. I thought that other people might be interested in using it, too, so I built my Twitter Filter for sxsw using a user input field. You just enter your “with friends” Twitter feed URL, grab the RSS feed output, and put the feed in your favorite mobile RSS reader. Now you can make sure you don’t miss anything!
How it works:
- You enter your Twitter “with friends” feed (it defaults to mine).
- It searches the feed for these 2 keywords “sxsw” and “austin”
- It outputs only the tweets with one of those keywords
Keep in mind that you can clone this pipe and add some extra keywords. Good candidates might be “party” or “werewolf”
For those sxsw’ers on Twitter, a bunch of us are writing similar filters, so you might want to make sure you include the text or hash tag “sxsw” in your Tweets.
