#myCurrentView was built to experiment with the Twitter API. I’m not happy with the current state of photo–sharing for mobile devices. I don’t believe they take full advantage of the technology they contain. In its present form, #myCurrentView aggregates tweets which include an image and the string “my current view,” #myCurrentView, or #mcv. If the tweet includes location data, it renders the image on a map using the Google Maps API.
- Custom analytics software that only counts an image as viewed when it is visible in the browser window
- API (using XAuth) that allows posting #myCurrentViews from mobile devicesiii
- Custom URL shortening system
