Twitter public timeline

Last night I finally got access to the full public feed from Twitter. I've written a daemon in C to push all tweets received into a DB and knocked up a little toy to test that it's working.

Random Tweet

Doesn't do much, just displays a random tweet from the past hour. Probably not useful to anyone besides me but I've found it quite interesting to see the random crap people tweet about, maybe you will too.

Next step is to feed this data into Tweetmeme and a couple of other ideas I've got, but need to make sure this is 110% stable first.
