Today, I participated in a hackathon called “Niku-thon” in Japan. “Niku” means meat in Japanese. I enjoyed eating rare foods and programming. In the hackathon, I was challeged to visualize multiple Twitter timelines using rCharts.
Here's the result. I visualized the timelines of the participants in the hackathon. Before long, I will release a new package including this output.
library(firstdate) # this is my underconstructing package library(plyr) participants <- getEventUsers(48504) # Nikuthon participants key <- "XXXXX" secret = "XXXXX" result <- ldply(participants$twitter_id, function(x) getTwitter(x, key, secret)) visTL(result)
