Twitter Aggregation

The Philly New Media Hub will soon be aggregating tweets. Send an @reply or a DM to @newmediahub or @inxilpro if you would like to be followed. We plan on optionally offering a #PNMH hashtag so you can only include certain tweets, so let me know if you want all or some tweets to show up.

About the Philly New Media Hub

The Philly New Media Hub was designed and developed by Philadelphia local Chris Morrell. The system is written in PHP 5 and is built using the Galahad Framework Extension, which is built on top of the Zend Framework. Windows and tooltips are generated using Ext JS 2.0. Using open formats such as iCalendar, RSS and Atom, the system is able to aggregate content from dozens of different sources, and put them all on one page.

Please note that because the site is dynamically built, groups that do not provide their calendar in iCalendar format could not be included. For a comprehensive list of groups in the Philadelphia area, check out the Philly Groups Calendar.

If you would like to be listed on the Philly New Media Hub, please contact me. At this time I can only include sites that support iCalendar, RSS, Atom, or have a mailing list. If you do not offer any of these syndication formats, I highly recommend checking out Google Calendar for calendars or Dapper and Feed43 for RSS/Atom feeds.

If your content is currently aggregated by the Philly New Media Hub and you would like it removed, please contact me. I've tried to be sensitive to content ownership issues by keeping the information displayed on the site to a minimum and linking to the originating site whenever possible. If you have any concerns I want to hear them.
