    by Jeff Linwood

    Want to build your next application off of live Twitter updates? Twitter provides a streaming API that you can filter by username, keyword, or geo-location. Using a couple of great Ruby gems, we can store tweets from the streaming API into MongoDB, a NoSQL store that's perfect for analysis.

    I'll go over the basics of the Twitter API, MongoDB, the mongo and tweetstream ruby gems, and how to bring it all together into a sample application.
