Labs - Tweet Munger - Custom Translations
Friday 22nd July 2011, 19:00
Along the lines of the original Tweet Munger project, this version of the Tweet Munger takes the Twitter feed from a specified user, translates it and then re-posts the results to a new twitter account. The difference with this version is that instead of using an external translation service, you can define your own translations.
It's easy to set up a new account, the code is available in Github with instructions for how to set it up. You'll need a server running PHP, and the ability to run crontab (unless you want to hit refresh every 10 minutes). I have created a set of Pirate translations, but it would be easy to add additional types...
