Twitter Mobile Monitor uses a Jquery interface to search tweet by keywords (including hashtags) on cross platform smart device. It’ s simple web apps alternative to the data apps, useful to keep away from data privacy collecting. The interface provides automatic scroll of the tweets and updates the query every 120 seconds, costantly monitoring your social network group. At this moment I am testing over IPhone platform as you can see in the picture below.
Let me know if you found it useful, limits and about bugs or testing on other platform.

Another use for wp-ajax-rss is monitoring twitter status update of a specific user. I found it useful to follow a twitter user particularly active or a twitter user live tweeting events (sport, meeting, etc.) . In order to do this in ajax-rss.php I simply grab the XML file with php simplexml_load_file
$status = simplexml_load_file(‘http://api.twitter.com/1/users/show/User.xml’);
and print the status->text field containing the text of the last tweet and status->created_at field containing date and time of the last tweet .
This is a snapshot example of Twitter update.

Wp Ajax Rss plugin use Jquery and Magpie Rss to monitoring your social feeds or status update. With it, you can define a interval to update Rss data via Ajax call with a cute fade effect.

Simple Delicious Spy is an example of use of my Wp Ajax Rss plugin. I found it very useful for its very immediate approach similar to headlines news of the news site.The refresh of headlines at a specific time interval has more impact than using an interface with too much stimulus (image,scroll,tags), because diverse scientific studies about interfaces, demonstrate that too much stimulus tend to confuse the users instead of catching their attention to the value of the content.
I think about this application like a sort of starting point to found new fresh ideas for blogger constantly searching news.
Let me know if you find useful for some reason this tool.
