loveAndHate Twitter with Processing

This piece is a dynamic & real-time data visualization of twitter stream.

It parses all tweets from the Twitter Streaming API and filters & refines the flow in order to use only tweets containing the term love, hate or both.

It displays continuously the ratio between these two terms and also the number of total analyzed tweets at the bottom.

Users can interact by choosing the number of tweets that have to be considered & displayed by the piece. The more this number in the right-top corner is high, the less the piece seems repsonsive because ratio converges to a value around  80%, meaning love is 80% more tweeted that hate, which makes me happy.
