Inspiration

Wouldnt it be fun to put an anonymous stream of tweets up at a party on a big screen and see what people say? We sure though so so we built SWARMsecret.

How it works

https://github.com/swarmnyc/swarm-sercret

Challenges we ran into

People are not nice online. We had to put in a profanity filter to stop folks from harassing others.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We basically threw it up and it gets 1000s of visits a month which is pretty awesome. :)

What I learned

Experimenting is fun, people are not nice online, and spam is everywhere.

What's next for SWARMsecret

Probably nothing. Maybe throttling the amount people can post from a singe ip. It gets some spam on occasion. :(
