November 29, 2005 was launch day for www.turkeytwitter.com. It was a way to track what everyone is thankful for this Thanksgiving.
The site was thrown together quickly -- one day -- but worked well tracking, and graphing, what people were thankful for. The site was based off using the #turkeytwitter hashtags to track. We used the Twitter API to track and post tweets and used the Google Charts API to add a few graphs and tag clouds for visual reference.
The motivation for this was a social experiment to see what people were (most) thankful for.
