Dreams on Twitter

This is an experiment in connecting Flash to the Twitter Search API using Tweetr, an awesome package/wrapper for AS3. It’s real easy to use. You’ll have to use a proxy though to get around twitter’s cross domain restrictions. Highly recommended! (The proxy only takes PHP5 though, so make sure you have that before installing).

Working on a grander scale project, so this is just a test.

What is an ONEIROI?

The Oneiroi were the dark-winged Daimones (Spirits) of dreams. They emerged each night like a flock of bats from their cavernous home in Erebos, the land of eternal darkness beyond the rising sun. The Oneiroi passed through one of two gates (pylai). The first of these, made of horn, was the source of the prophetic god-sent dreams, while the other, constructed of ivory, was the source of dreams which were false and without meaning. The term for nightmare was melas oneiros (black dream).

According to some the leader of the Oneiroi was Morpheus, a god who appeared in the dreams of kings in the guise of a man, delivering messages from the gods.
