Working on «Twitter Smileyhash»

I am currently working on a Twitter app I have called Smileyhash. It introduces a new hashtag in the form #smiley(0-10). The way it works is that you can use the hashtag to mark the mood or feeling in you tweet.

For instance, you can tweet:

I think #Trump is the worst president ever #smiley0

Or:

I really love president #Trump he is the best #smiley10

Or maybe:

#Trump doesnt mean anything for me #smiley5

This, in my app, will give opportunities to later search for #Trump and give averages. You can also search for other things and compare. So for a while ago, during the presidential campaign in USA, you could for instance have been comparing Clinton and Trump.

I will release the app soon and post here when it is done. I make the app in React with Redux with a node.js backend using MongoDB as base and utilize the Twitter Streaming API to fetch tweets with the hashtag.

The backend will be hosted on some cloud service, I think either AWS or OpenShift.

At the time of writing I am working on developing the API and stream saver locally but will soon deploy and test on cloud and release the front end probably as a sub domain of perandersen.no. If you have a job offer in the Oslo area, contact me on LinkedIn and I will give you a demo.
