Twitter and the Nevada Republican Party have partnered to deliver voters, developers and news organizations real-time access to the results of the “First in the West” Nevada Presidential Caucuses on February 4th. You can follow the votes on Twitter as they come in via two accounts:
To access the automated precinct-by-precinct data, you will need to use the Twitter Streaming API. Documentation on using the API to bring in data is available here.
We recommend using the follow parameter with the statuses/filter API method for streaming the Tweets sent from @NVVoteCount (user ID 475526099). You may utilize just the query string with a curl request for this kind of simple integration.
curl -u username:password "https://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/filter.json?follow=475526099"
curl -u username:password "https://stream.twitter.com/1/statuses/filter.json?follow=475526099" > nvvotecount.json
Instructions on how to parse the data in each Tweet is available here. [UPDATED 2/2/12]
