What is twitster?
Put simply, Twitster is a PHP application that lets you display tweets on your own web site from everyone you follow in Twitter. What's more, Twitster can filter those tweets by a hash tag (#example) giving you the ability to create a Twitter-based group or community on your own site.
- Publish your Twitter community on your own web site.
- Gather and publish tweets from the people and the topics you care about.
- Powering your site's community with Twitter means little to no work for member participation. (Just tweet!)
