UPDATE: Twitter discontinued this use of the their APIs with the 2.0 changes causing this extension to break. I will however still leave it up here in case you want to look at the code for your own projects.
So, we are putting up some new monitors on our office wall to show off boring stuff like sales pipeline, booking rate on consultants etc etc AND we built a small twitter extension to show off what's being said on twitter. Why we built it in QlikView I have no idea, probably because we could
Displays a twitter feed for your search criteria that updates in real time. I hard coded the number of feed items and refresh rate but you could change that easily in the script. Seems the Japanese just woke up when I took the screenshot
Haven't tested this, but the reason might be that jQuery is bundled in Qv 11 ajax files, while it is not in version 10. So, if you use jQuery, you need to load it in version 10, but you might not need that in version 11.

Twitter killed the support for their 1.0 version of the API, and then also this extension, and have moved over to 1.1.
With version 1.1 we can't do un-autenticated calls against the API anymore, , so there is no way of implementing this functionality into QV without having a server side component handeling authentication.
I was trying to fetch the Twitter and Facebook live feeds in the qlikview application, can you help me on it, I was trying to use the extension object which you have shared, but I was unable to fetch the information.
Theoretically yes, you could frame in the entire twitter homepage with a search query.
However it will look... ugly
With the changes to the Twitter API that broke this extension I would instead set up my own server side component that streams tweets back to clients over websockets or as a rest api. The obvious benefit being that it's not QlikView specific anymore and could be used with any type of client, your phone, your TV or your big screen streaming in search queries (or into a database for that matter for later analysis).
