Atsaty

A tweet says a thousand yeps...

Atsaty acts like yes, but instead of always outputting yeps, it uses sentiment analysis to find the current mood of English-speaking tweeters on Twitter. If there are more positive tweeters than negative, it outputs yep, otherwise it outputs nope.

$ atsaty
y
y
y
...
var atsaty = require("atsaty");

atsaty(function(err, yep) {
    if(yep) console.log("Everyone on Twitter seems to be happy");
    else console.log("Tweeters are crying at the moment");
});

atsaty("from:z0w0", function(err, yep) {
    if(yep) console.log("The creator of this pointless thing is happy");
    else console.log("The creator is sad, T__T");
});

API

atsaty([query,] cb)

Uses the Twitter Search API and sentiment analysis to figure out how Twitter is currently feeling.

If query is provided, then it will check the mood of a specific search query instead of the entire Twitter community (e.g. "#racist #cats").

The callback will be called with an error or null as its first argument, false as its second if there are no positive tweets or there are more negative tweets than positive ones, otherwise it calls with a second argument of true.
