About this Workshop
The idea is to catch the stream of all tweets (~ 100 millions daily) and process them to extract the hashtag zeitgeist, ie the most popular hashtags of the moment. This program consisting of few dozen lines of python will be modified during the workshop to filter out and processing the tweets according to the attendants suggestions.
