TweetSharp Has a New Demo Application

If you don't know about the TweetSharp library (google code) started off by Daniel Crenna and Jason Diller then, if you are interested in talking to the Twitter API from C# you should check it.

Yesterday I contributed a small MVC sample application to the project - I have been playing with a small "business" idea and it involves Twitter interaction. As a playpen I started off an MVC application, and then it started growing. It also happens that it has proved to be the playpen for a lot of the MVC/JSON/JQuery interations that my paying job is using right now, so it got even more legs due to that.

The sample application actually shows little about ASP.NET MVC, as almost all of the "heavy" work is done via JQuery Ajax calls, and the core View Engine stuff in MVC only provides the shell pages. It does however show quite a nice way (IMHO) of writing "Web 2.0" applications using ASP.NET MVC.

So if you are interested, go check it out ... all comments welcome, and I'm sure Daniel would appreciate anyone else who would like to commit to the project, either by making the sample applciation better, or by helping write, document and test the TweetSharp API itself.

Nice! This is the first MVC application for twitter I have seen. Are there anymore example of MVC twitter apps or is this the only one out there?

I wrote a little application using MVC called

It let's you compare the followers between two users and gives you a ratio of the result. Useful for determining whether you have enough difference between yourself and person you'd like to retweet. I'm currently refactoring and upgrading the application to give prettier graphs and a service to make it available for integration with existing apps. -- what's your ratio?

Not MVC related, but Twitter, here's another .Net Twitter library (also written in C#) you might be interested in is LINQ To Twitter,

As a way of learning MVC I have also written a very basic MVC app. It isn't quite complete (homepage needs refinement and whilst you can delete alerts the actual unsubscribe function does not yet work), but it is a close to being finished twitter alert app.
