I am an artist/n00b programmer trying to integrate electronics with my art. I would like to use streaming information from twitter to power a series of leds. The person interacting with the project would input three search terms and the program I would like to write would then send a signal to a microcontoller every time a tweet from the public timeline includes one of those search terms. My question is how do i make my program, most likely written in C, communicate with twitter? Any help with any aspect of this project would be great.
Thanks, Nick Sturtzel
