Premier League Highlights incorporates all the best moments of a particular game week. So, we found it cool to have a collection of stuff we wanted to view and what better medium than a video. Therefore we came up with the idea to present a person with a video comprising of his/her topics of interests.
What it does
Based on a person's twitter profile, a video comprising of smaller chunks is played. Each of those smaller chunks pertains to one or more of the person's likes. For example, if a person tweets about Seattle Sounders, vividly video is likely to show a classic goal score by the team.
