Twitter Chat Embed

  • # November 23, 2012 at 8:11 am

    Hi all,

    I would like to host a Twitter Chat using http://www.tweetchat.com and wondered if anyone knew how this could be embedded within another website?

    What research have you done?

    Do they not have an API?

    Here’s something interesting I found:

    >To the user of TweetChat, the exchange looks like a conversation among a bunch of people in a chatroom (some of whom you follow on Twitter and some of whom you don’t follow).

    >But, the problem is that all of your followers (and followers of others in the chat as well) get spammed with your out-of-context tweets that are intended for the group chat. And the non-TweetChat users only see your messages, not those of their non-friends participating in the chat. They see odd snippets from a conversation, not a coherent whole.

    Hi Paulie, thanks for the reply and sorry for not responding sooner. I have been searching for examples/tutorials of anyone that has embedded a Twitter chat in their website but haven’t found anything yet.

    I really like what the BBC do with their Tweets, as they ‘feature tweets’ in the same way that Tweet Chat does. They obviously feed featured Tweets into their website.

    If anyone knows how I can do a similar thing that would be great.

    I haven’t been able to find an API for Tweet Chat yet.

    Thanks,

    Ross
