Hello
I am currently working on a project where I would like to connect three lights to twitter and have them flash on with the mention of a hashtag on the site. I want to connect one light so it flashes with the mention of #love, another with the mention of #hate and the final with the mention #theartispresent.  I am very new to this and have watched so many tutorials but still need help. I have been working with the arduino uno and an ethernet shield(as the wifi in the exhibition space is not reliable). Any code and advice would be very much appreciated as I  have set myself quite a challenge... please help!!!

Thank you,
Eilidh smiley

Maybe there are some ideas here that can help.  Apparently the twitter API has changed since the making of this and it no longer works.  The principle sounds similar though.    Good luck with your project smiley
