What it does
Queries Twitter based on user input 'start' & 'finish' hashtags and returns the most highest frequency hashtag 'neighbors' for each. The user can then click through the returned values in an effort to navigate to a common hashtag value
How we built it
Fueled by Redbull
Challenges we ran into
It was our first time using Flask & the Twitter API only allows 180 query request every 15 minutes.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We had no idea what to hack out when we arrived and in a matter of 24 LONG hours, we came up with a creative, engaging, interesting, and entertaining concept...and we built a near fully functioning product!
What we learned
Sleep deprivation affects productivity
What's next for Twitter Hashtag Race
Implement ads so we can afford the professional Twitter API and rework the gameplay/UX into their intended forms.
