Introducing Portwiture: Your Twitter status, in photos

Published on

portwiture_mascotTwitter (a mass-messaging service) and Flickr (a photo-sharing community) are both stunning examples of audience-powered communication. One thing they both have in common: open APIs.

I hadn’t experimented yet with either interface, so I thought to myself: “Why not try both at once?”

The result is Portwiture, a little jQuery-powered web app that finds and displays Flickr photos based on the most common words in your last twenty tweets.

Typically I start my projects with a problem to solve. Portwiture is the product of a more artistic temperament, created out of the simple desire to see what would happen.

So go see what happens, and let me know what should happen next on the UserVoice forum or in the comments. Dig it!
