We are delighted to see the StreamInsight developer community shaping up. Johan Åhlén, one of the most active members of this group, has published a Twitter input adapter last week, featured on SQLServerCentral. It uses the Twitter API to receive near-real time updates from the “sample method” and “filter method” APIs (the full firehose API of all public status updates is only accessible to users with high access levels). Converting tweets into point events, the adapter opens up a wide range of semantically rich analytics over Twitter data, expressed in declarative StreamInsight LINQ. Johan has published the sources of his adapter on the StreamInsight CodePlex site. Keep up the great work, Johan!
