Has anyone created a twitter like app in Sharepoint 2007? Would really like to know about your ideas and suggestions.

How would you want it implemented? Web Part/JQuery/Page layout. There are so many ways to do this, none of them are specific to SharePoint. I guess the solution depends on the level of access you have to the farm. –  Charles Lee Jul 15 '10 at 10:33
Thanks Charles for a quick reply. The client I am working with already has a SharePoint 2007 site and they want to make use of it. So they I have planned it so far is that we will have a central tweet page which will display all the tweets and depending on subscription the user will only see the relevant ones. Does that make sense? I havent yet decided whether I want to do it with Web Parts or Page Layout as yet. Probably Web Parts for a quick turn around. –  Anonymous Jul 15 '10 at 11:52

There are a few options for you.

Michael Gannotti has this point on how to do it simply with a content editor web part and some javascript: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/mikeg/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=1202

Aidan Garnish has a solution here: http://aidangarnish.net/blog/post/2009/02/Twitter-SharePoint-web-part.aspx

There's a CodePlex project called SharePointTwitter here: http://sharepointtwitter.codeplex.com/

And if you just want to search twitter there's a web part here: http://www.mattjimison.com/blog/2009/03/04/twitter-search-webpart/

Hope that helps!
