It is designed for live broadcasts where a live feed is needed on a projection or large LCD/Plasma display.
One of the obstacles I ran into was the size of the images returned via the API. There are technically 2 size images available for linking from a twitter profile. Those are 48×48 and 73×73.
I just added another line of code to the mix to replace the url from the JSON results with the bigger one.
var profileimage = this.profile_image_url.replace(“normal,’bigger’);
This might not seem like much but when you are dealing with a large room nearly doubling the image size, helps a lot.
