Ethereal Chat

For the 2015 Meteor Global Distributed Hackathon

What is Ethereal Chat?

Chatrooms are auto-generated by current global hashtag trends on Twitter which people can participate anonymously. On a set interval, the server will update the chatroom list. Chatrooms that were previously trending, but no longer are, will be removed. New trends will then be turned into new chatrooms.

Things we left out, but thought it'd be really cool to have

  • Allow trends to be filtered by users' location.
  • Tweets that corresponded to the chatroom trend would be in-lined into the chatrooms.
  • Allowing users to sign in with their Twitter accounts. Reply, retweets, favorites, and convert messages into tweets.
