On certain dates, Nike for example, tweets out a link at a certain time to one or more of its shoes for customers to purchase. I'd like the program to be able to click the link that was tweeted by Nike's Twitter account (as soon as it's tweeted, THE SPEED OF THE PROGRAM IS MOST IMPORTANT) and open it up in a tab or window on google chrome. The program must be able to perform this step as quickly and efficiently as possible.
It needs to be customizable by users of the program as well. By that I mean I need to be able to customize the following:
- The username of the twitter account to monitor
- Key words to look for within a tweet
Additionally, I need this program to work with Mac OS.
Here is a more precise description. It is a repost, but edited a little bit.
The program, while running will need to complete the following:
1). Follow a twitter account i.e @NikeStore official account.
2). Recognize a incoming tweet from @NikeStore with a twitter link to the product.
(i.e. The Jordan Spizike ‘3M’ is now available [login to view URL])
3). Automatically open the twitter link in google chrome (i.e. [login to view URL] which directs the user to the [login to view URL] website where the sneaker is located.)
Tutorial and Instructions must be clear and concise where the customizable options are (twitter account to follow, key words to search for)
With the example I put in step #2, the key words I want to be able to put in the program for example are words such as "Jordan Spizike 3M" and I would like the program to just automatically find the link associated with that tweet ([login to view URL]) and just open it.
I NEED THIS TO BE REALLY REALLY FAST MAYBE THAT USES API AND GETS INTO TWITTERS SERVER WHEN NIKE TWEETS BEFORE EVERYONE SEES.
IT COULD RUN OFF TWEETDECK THAT WOULD MAKE IF FAST BECAUSE ITS A LIVE FEED. OR MAYBE A PROGRAM THAT RUNS WITH API AND CLICKS ON LINK AND PUTS IN CART. *****FAST IS KEY**** (because everyone else has bots and this has to be faster then theres. if its a chrome extension or a program. Programs are usaully faster.
I HAVE THE BASIC BOT YOU CAN WORK OFF OF. NOT TRYING TO SPEND OVER $200.
LIKE THIS MAYBE SO ITS REALLY FAST.. it goes to the twitter server
the twitter server then disperses the tweets among individuals across the nation following twitter
there is a time from the moment nike clicks tweet
to the server
to the twitter users
then it uploads on their page
a 3 step process
then their bot is twitter dependent
so then its a 4 step process the bot must detect the word (slight lag)
my bot uses streaming API, as soon as nike clicks tweet
the bot goes to the twitter server
AND my program
each indicidual is like a twitter server
they run their streaming API
thats wht its called w
which allows me to get the link before it actually loads to twitter because i get it at the same time the twitter server gets it, not necesssarily showing up on twitter itself
thats the simplest way i can put it
