2The Klondike Comedy Showcase utilized the Twitter API to host a Twitter joke contest . Each week, we set forth a topic and, using a specific hashtag, we aggregated the tweets onto 1 website. There, users could vote up or down the jokes. At the end of the 10 week program, we had 10 finalists to compete for the grand prize.
(Hilariously, we had to set up a moderating system that automatically excluded tweets that included certain four letter words and their variations — about 300 of them. Some of them were pretty graphically awesome, if you want to know some of these words, drop me a line at email@example.com)
