Twistori – good as it is, but better if it could be refined

Twistori is an interesting mashup application,  the first step in an ongoing social experiment; it’s based on twitter. inspired by wefeelfine and drawing data from summize, hand-crafted by amy hoy and thomas fuchs.  Social Media Today has a post about Twistori: another time sink which doesn’t say much beyond the title.

It’s the handcrafted part – if we had that control – we could target it to say …. tell me everything with “love” in it said about Hillary Clinton on Twitter right now – or in the last day.   It doesn’t do quite that – but I bet it could be made to do something like that with just a little work.

Jeff Jarvis thinks Twistori could be used as a national pulse

“…Next I expect someone to come up with a national mood index based on our tweets. Today, we’re feeling self-conscious.”

I would suggest a version of Twistori that allows you to target what you want and put in what “verbs” you want – and perhaps, metrics can also be built around that (esp if you can select a span of time to examine).
