User Enhancements to Twapper Keeper

by

As mentioned previously JISC is funding developments to the Twapper Keeper service to reflect the interests of the JISC community – the higher and further education communities in the UK. Since such developments are likely to be beneficial to all Twapper Keeper users suggestions for developments are invited from everyone.

Comments to this post should address developments to the Twapper Keeper Web site with suggestions and enhancements invited on the interfaces for the creation of new archives and access to existing Twapper Keeper archives.

The following post will cover API developments.

    * Status alert – backlog status, health etc
    * getstatisfaction/uservoice feedback/new features mechanism
    * a more refined/advance search option. Boolean i.e. from (thisPerson OR thatPerson) AND hashtag
    * quick filter results (a bit like http://www.rsc-ne-scotland.org.uk/mashe/ititle/seek.html)

    just found the twapper keeper get satisfaction link – is it linked to from the top level?

  4. John O'Brien Says:

    Martin – yes, the Get Sasifaction Link is on every page using their Feedback tab. Let me know if you are not seeing it.

    Definitely need to get my eyes checked😉

    [… I can see it now]

  7. Gary Green Says:

    How about the capability for users to subject tag Twapper Keeper archives and the ability to search these tags? I know the person who sets up a Twapper Keeper archive can add a description, but this description doesn’t always give the fullest information. Sometimes I’d like to know what has been archived on a particular topic area, but the current description and search doesn’t allow you to do that. For example, I just searched for ‘Library mashup’ and it retrieved no results. However, I know that both #middlemash and #mashliv archives are about this subject. So, the only way I can find archives related to my interest is by knowing that they exist.

  8. Jeremy Says:

    I think people should be able to delete twapper copies of their own stream. OK, public streams are just that, but it’s not possible to scan an entire history normally and people might not want their streams archived without their knowledge. I think ideally individual streams would be archived only by their owner, but people should certainly be able to prevent their stream being twapped. Note that the Library of Congress, which has grabbed Twitter’s archive, will only be making it available under strict conditions to genuine researchers (whatever that means); this again seems reasonable given that it’s making the ephemeral, durable.

  9. Jeremy Says:

    PS just to say, I was a bit alarmed when I went to twapp my own tweets that (a) I wasn’t asked for a username/password and (b) I can’t delete a twapp I’ve made – it’s there for good. Of course, there’s no technical or legal reason why I should be asked for my Twitter password, but there is the question of manners!
