Microblogging services, like Twitter, are widely used for all kind of purposes, like organizing meetings, gathering preferences among friends, or contact community managers of companies or services.
With suitable automation, tweets can be used as a dialogue mechanism between users and computer applications, and we have built a tool, named Twiagle, to construct tweet-based applications. Twiagle includes a pattern-matching language to express the interesting parts to be detected and selected from tweets, and an action language to query matched tweets, aggregate information from them or synthesize messages.
