  1. The Twelescreen code

    About the code I wrote to make Twelescreen, and what else it can do.

  2. Twelescreen

    I made a big-screen Twitter client devoted to showing Tweets from the UK and US governments and security forces because the Tweets seem scary.

    @fortyvenus I’m happy to do one, but I don’t know enough to know which twitter accounts it should show.

    @tomcoates Well I’m at work *now*. And I’m going out later. I’ll watch it someday. Or I might not, if that’s more annoying? :)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomcoates I didn’t even know there was one until you mentioned it.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @blech Yeah, baffles me. I *think* I’m doing everything right, and I want it to just give up if it fails, but often… no. Just sits there.

    Morning America! I made you a twelescreen.com too. More about it gyford.com/phil/writing/2… and gyford.com/phil/writing/2… Keep watching.

    @_duncanhall @lindseykistler @dansumption It does need JS I’m afraid. And it probably breaks on older IEs. What version is that?

    @mildlydiverting I said David Cameron, not @chrislunch. HA HA!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @mildlydiverting Yes, that’s the kind of thing I was going for. Only with David Cameron’s smiling face.

    @anu @dotcode Oh nice - I hadn’t seen that, thanks. I should suggest it in the docs!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @phl Thank you. The vertical centring gets progressively worse in older browsers, but otherwise seems OK!

    In related news, I’ve made a customisable, theme-able, self-hosted, big-screen Twitter web app. More on that here: gyford.com/phil/writing/2…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    I made twelescreen.com Please keep it open so your rulers can contact you. I wrote about it here: gyford.com/phil/writing/2…
