Twitter Wall

Recently I have spent some time working on creating a simple twitter wall application using Electron as the front end, which is a nice framework that allows you to use web technologies to create desktop applications. The application also uses a nodejs twitter library which implements the official Twitter API which allows it to catch any tweets with specific keywords.

The idea behind this project is to create a very simple twitter wall project, which will eventually be released as an opensource github repository once I have things working nicely.
