Hire Adam Green for Twitter API Consulting

Adam is available for short and long-term development and marketing projects based on the Twitter API. This can range from advice on code and database architecture to a full tweet aggregation database or custom Twitter client for your website. He can also create and manage a social media marketing campaign based on Twitter, which generally includes strategy for growing and managing a successful commercial Twitter account, custom tools for tweeting and building followers, and detailed plans for integrating Tweets into a website for SEO benefits.

He is experienced in developing web-based code on Linux servers using PHP, MySQL and Javascript, with a particular fondness for jQuery. He can architect your code and database, write the code needed to collect Tweets and manage a Twitter account through the API, and integrate the results into your web pages. He can also create a web service for this functionality that your regular website developers can call from their own code.

The simplest way to get started is to call or email to schedule an initial 30 minute consultation.

Adam lives in the Boston area, and is available for regular meetings in this region during the course of a development project, although all coding work will be done on a telecommuting project. Outside of the greater Boston area all communication will be done through phone and email.
