Wanted: Twitter Search Results to Speech App

Last night, I thought I would turn on the South Carolina GOP Debate to act as some background noise while I was doing some hacking. Unfortunately, wasn't cooperating (just seemed to time out while waiting to join the live feed). So, I switched to plan B: use Twitter's search function to follow the mood of the debate live.

The results were surprisingly funny with some real zingers being published.

But, what fun is a text based interface that I actually had to read? For heavens sake, this is 2012 -- reading is so 2011.

So here's what I need: someone who takes the xtranormal voice to animation platform, and plugs it into a set of Twitter search results. You could then plug in a hashtag like #cnndebate and just sit back as pure snark is read aloud.

Who's with me?

Oh wait, you would have had to read this post...and like I said, reading was so 2011. D'oh.
