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.
