Working with Neil Solomon, we created a portal of social media content surrounding an event, in this case the NBA Playoffs. Using TwitterJS, nTwitter, Instagram and Twitter APIs we were able to parse the content through GEO locations and keywords and display it in a timeline from the start to the end of the event. There is plenty more work to do but this is the foundation for a portal that will allow social media to become a means of digital story telling as an event occurs.
Here is version 1 of the project that will hopefully evolve and allow visitors to get the full picture of an event through content that is willingly posted by YOU
