Hi guys,

Figured I'd post a really simple bot I wrote for you guys to follow on Twitter.

Quite simply, it tweets the ticker along with a +,- or = depending on whether the price has gone up or down.
For example:
Code:
Buy: 14.22 [+] | Sell: 14.29326045 [=] | Last: 14.2 [-], 3 minutes ago

https://twitter.com/TradeHillTicker

Source code: https://github.com/Wonderbread/tradehill-bot

Very nice.  Personally I'd rather see a ticker tweeter that updated only around, say, every other hour or thereabouts though, as every 5 minutes would be a bit annoying to me in my twitter stream.

I was going by (as far as I can tell) the same time frame as the MtGox bot. That said, I can see it getting annoying (My twitter stream is rather crowded so I'm only noticing it very infrequently).

Any other suggestions on time between tweets?

Set up 4 Twitter accounts.

TradeHillEveryHour

TradeHillEveryHalf

TradeHillEveryFive

etc

Or named better though.

That would be nice - maybe with a background including text which mentions all of the accounts.  We could then choose which one to follow.  It would be an interesting contest between the accounts too to see which of them gets the most followers. Smiley
