For the Love of Bacon
Chris knew that I, too, am a bacon lover and told me of the idea. I had been itching to do some more creative work than is allowed at my current job, so I offered to help.
In the end, Chris designed the interface, I translated it into XHTML and CSS, and Jonathan did the PHP development.
Cook Your Own
And thanks to Chris and Jonathan's commitment to open source, the source code is available (via SVN) for developers interested in creating their own Twitter keyword aggregation site (Note: this is not an official release, so use at your own risk).

Our launch of BaconTwits was very well received:
And it continues to get notice.
A Bit of "Press"
I'm not entirely sure why I didn't blog about BaconTwits when we first released it, other than the fact I've been swamped since October.
The reason I mention it now is that the site has been getting a bit more attention lately, and I wanted to share the news.
“The Greatest Tool for the Twittering Public, Ever.”
Personally, I'm honored. And I tend to agree. Bacon rocks. Twitter rocks.

“If you’re reading this blog, there’s a chance you like bacon. If you follow more than one blog, there’s a chance you also like other time-wasting, Internet-based nonsense, like Facebook and Twitter. If any or all of those things are true about you, then you should check out BaconTwits.”
So, if you are a lover of bacon and a lover of Twitter, check out BaconTwits.
You can also follow us on Twitter to get lots of bacony goodness.
