Twyric = Twitter + lyric. Twyric is an experiment. It has no further meaning but providing a background for contemplation.
Twyric combines lyric Twitter tweets with photos from flickr in real time.
How is it working?
We get all tweets with the hashtags #haiku, #twyric, #twly, #gedicht, #poesie, #lyric, #poetry, #limerick, #poetic and #poem with help of Twiters reals time search. Then we split it by "/" (slash) to get the rows for displaying it. In addition, we remove @<twittername> content as well as all hashtags. Because an image says more than 1000 words, we try to parse for keywords, getting rid of stopwords. With these keywords, the flickr API is used for a full text search of mathing images. Now, the tweet with the matching image is displayed.
