Living In the Stream I.

This app searches Twitter for real-time snow reports and displays them on the map. Tweet the hashtag #uksnow, your location (postcode, town name or geotag your tweet), and rate the snow that is falling out of ten (0/10 for nothing – 10/10 for a blizzard). You can also include the depth of snow (cm or inches), attach a photo and add a description to your tweet.

Observe a Twitter stream and categorize the presumptive intent of each Tweet. The framing questions could be:
1. What is the tweet implicitly asking me to do in response?
2. What are the other clear contextual features I can infer from a Tweet?
3. What would be the top level categories that could be used to describe a general intent-plus-effect of a Tweet?

This last question could be visualized as sorting Tweets into different boxes based in the information in the Tweet, and, ‘safe’ inferences we would make in the light of the qualifications posed by #1 and #2. Because I’ve narrowed the categorical focus to a top level, the sense of sorting would be to derive very general categories that do not overlap.

What interests me are combinations of factors and features discoverable as a matter of knowing more fully user intent. A blunt question about this is: what is the payoff for observing and/or participating in your own Twitter stream? Implicit in this would be a behavioral economic qualification of intent. There are lots of other directions too, so I wonder about personality factors, enabling tools, affectual elements, etc.

Here is the Netdynam20 stream from 8:35 a.m. EST (USA).

    hi there – well, these examples scroll right off the page… i wouldn’t mind doing a comment on a sample of each, saying something to the questions you posed above. experimental interpretant-creation so to speak.

    but there are so many of them – what is YOUR intent in posting this sample?
    i spose i am being here the typical living-in-the-stream scanner, and have scanned through each, certainly not bothering to follow up on the URLs posted for each sample…
    but for my own twitter accounts [with an 's' - and i include ND2.0], i also scan through, then stop at those ‘announcements’ which provide me with a URL as a pointer to further info.
    this is what i do like about twitter. short updates/summaries of longer articles or noted items on the net i would otherwise not have noticed.
    at the same time, it is sometimes difficult to pin down why some people follow ME – i mean other than known pals and buddies. that’s for the eldonnn one anyway. the others, well, they are linked to blogs mainly, and hope to gain a following of the same ilk as who’d be interested in the blogs…
