Following on from my post yesterday, I would like to introduce something I quickly hacked together to show how the kind of thing I was talking about might work.

As discussed in yesterday’s article, I already use twitter to provide a data feed for selective traffic alerts.

Street Level URLs provides a simple wrapper around this search, providing you with a nice summary page and the option to access the data in a number of different formats.

It uses twitter for the actual data and uses mod_rewrite rules to wrap the actual search up into an addressable URL.

Have fun!
