I am using Echofon for Mac and wonder how can I get, through Growl, all new messages based on some hashtag. In the options it does not seem to be possible.

Another option would be to get new tweets from a user that tweets only about a certain hashtag, is it possible to create such user?

You need to create a so called Twitter Bot which will tweet everything containing a certain hashtag.

There is a really good tutorial on this here.

  • great idea! I read it and seems to be quite complicated for me :( Commented Apr 30, 2011 at 14:28
  • I know, maybe you can find some other resources, google for Twitter Bot!
