    Following a Twitter list

    Warren,

    I want to be able to output the tweets from a list like @orcare/fleetandfarnborough4n.  Do you know if the package will do that?  I also want to be able to filter the tweets from that list so that I only show ones with a given hashtag, such as #4n, how easy would it be to hack the package to do that?

    Hi Paul,

    From memory if the source, pretty simple to do :)

    Warren should have this knocked up in 30 minutes... I'm timing you Warren ;-)

    Hey Paul,
    I would have to take a bit more look into it.

    But an example XML /Rest call would be like so
    http://api.twitter.com/1/warrenbuckley/lists/1001858/statuses.xml

    Obviously swap out warrenbuckley with the username and the ID of the list. To find the ID of a list you need to view the XML that this returns
    http://api.twitter.com/1/warrenbuckley/lists.xml

    You could then return all the statuses from a list and then with XSLT contains() you could check to see if that hashtag existed.

    The project is open for contribution if you want to get involved and create another XSLT to help do this, but currently right this minute I do no thave the time I am afraid.
    Cheers,
    Warren :)

    Warren,

    THanks for this.  I was looking for some direction, not for you to rewrite it for me!!!

    I'll have a play and let you know how I get on.
