#SocialWeatherFeed – Twitter App

#SocialWeatherFeed allows anyone to create a Twitter account (or use your own) to give a weather update for a selected weather station in Australia. It uses BoM weather data to give text updates every 3 hours and a 3 day charted history every morning.

It has taken me a while to figure out the best way to implement it and I am not sure if I have found it – but this is it for the moment.

Here is a list of the active Twitter accounts using #SocialWeatherFeed:

To add to this list you need to:

  1. Create a new Twitter account (you will need to use a different email address to your original account to open a second) and call it something like ‘Townsville Weather’
  2. Go to http://socialweatherfeed.appspot.com
  3. Select the weather station from the drop down box and ‘Submit Query’
  4. Authorise the Twitter account and you’re away!
  5. Let me know and I’ll add it to the list
