Connect Qlikview to twitter feed

Hey QlikPeople,

I am wondering if anyone has a way to set up a QVD that loads tweets from a specificied user account in real time?

I cannot seem to find anything on the interwebs to point me in that direction so maybe someone here can help me out.

Andrew,

Check out QVSource (http://www.qvsource.com) and the TIQSentiVal (http://www.tiq-solutions.de/display/loesungen/TIQSentiVal); These guys are doing a lot of cool things with Twitter and other social media sites these days!

Hi Andrew,

As Jason mentioned QVSource includes a connector for Twitter and you can see a live dashboard built using the connector here:

http://www.qvsource.com/qlikview_live_demos

It doesn't work in realtime but you can easily configure QlikView Server to run, for example, hourly reloads and accumulate all the new matching Tweets in a QVD file. This is how the demo application which you can download from the following is setup:
