Shitwitter
We're clearly at the very cutting edge of ajax implementation - and pushing the envelope of the Twitter API - but we figured you only get one chance to really explore what's possible in the digital world. We took that chance. This painstakingly crafted web app queries the Twitter API and highlights the word "shit" in recent Tweets. Oh Yes.

We got drunk, bought a URL and then did this. It took *much* longer to come up with the "idea" than it did to implement it. (I know! Shocking, right?). Enjoy it for 5 minutes, and then go back to the kitten pictures.

I don't know why it died, but twittertale did this with a whole list o' words. (less profane but just as tracky-of-words: politweets)

As a colorblind person, I'd suggest a different highlight color, perhaps actually highlighting the word instead of changing the letter coloring.

Regarding Cursebird: It's good, but it's too flashy. All those swearwords, all that nice UI and design, all those extra features. My advice to you all is to keep it shit. Keep it shitwitter.
