Social media api’s integration for America Cup TV broadcast

TVPública was the TV Channel in charge of air the cup for the entire country.  A social media campaign was planned to engage the audience, and I had the opportunity to make the integration of the data coming from the social networks API’s to appear in the big screens of the set of the tv shows related to the cup. The data from Flowics and Twitter API was consumed with PHP scripts, and the real-time visualizations were made with JavaScript on a browser.

The visualizations on the screen included, for example, hashtag mentions count, photos from the users posted with the hashtag of the campaign, statistics about the cup and more. In this YouTube playlist, you could watch some fragments were these actions were aired.
