Twemes.com is Shutting Down
In January 2008 a weekend experiment with hashtags turned into Twemes.com. While it was a side project, we upgraded and maintained it over the years but it has languished for quite some time and we have decided to shut it down. We thank all of those that have used Twemes.com over the years and I hope that this shutdown does not inconvenience many. If there are any questions, please contact me...
The #twemes are flowing again. There are still some problems that we are working on.
We are currently having problems getting data from Twitter and are working on fixing the problem.
The #twemes are flowing again! Thanks to a new data stream from Twitter, http://Twemes.com is once again able to find most tagged tweets.
Twemes Flowing Again
Thanks to access to a new data stream from Twitter, Twemes is once again able to catch most tagged tweets. Twitter cannot guarantee 100% access to tweets but it should be fairly close.
Down But Not Out
As many of your have already noticed, Twemes.com has not been able find all tagged tweets over the last few days. This is due to Twitter’s decisions to shutdown and/or limit access to a number of their APIs. Whether by design or by accident, Twemes.com now only has limited access to Twitter. We have made appeals to Twitter staff to help us continue to keep Twemes.com in operation but...
The Twitter API is partially back but we are only getting a small part of the data that we need.
The Twitter API that we use for Twemes.com broke last night. No new tweets will show up at Twemes.com until Twitter fixes this.
We have had some software problems that have prevented us from updating our database over the last couple of hours. Fixed now. #twemes
#Twemes now has hashtag aggregation. Follow multiple tags via “live update”, RSS or widget. http://tinyurl.com/4orl6a
Twemes.com now allows you to follow multiple tags at the same time. If you put multiple tags into the search box, page will be created that will aggregate those tags. This will work for RSS feeds as well as the Tweme widget. This is great for events where you know that different people will use various tags for the event.
From Fire to Ice
Due to the overwhelming demand for a change of color scheme, we have switch from our original “Fire” theme to an “Ice” theme. We haven’t lost the crazy background, just changed it’s color! We’ve got to keep something for the designers to complain about! The mobile website (m.twemes.com) has also been transformed to these cooler colors. As an added...
Some #twemes may be dropped due to broken twitter API.
