Telegraph Uses Tweets On Match Report

A flow of football-related posts uploaded to Twitter now adorns the football match report page on Telegraph.co.uk.

Journalism.co.uk reports that the newspaper is using a widget from aggregator Twitterfall to produce the series of tweets scrolling down the side of the page, which features live reports from Premier League and Champions League games.

The widget enables users to develop a custom search so tweets containing the selected key words or terms will then appear in close to real-time.

“Developed by a team of students, using Twitterfall could provide a neat way of following the conversations around certain players, transfer gossip or matches as they’re played,” says Journalism.co.uk.
