@benhowdle89 I am not sure if you can poll Twitter "live". You will hit the API calls upper limit pretty quickly then.

Why is my answer downvoted? :( It would be nice if the person downvoting could also give a reason so that I may get a chance to improve upon my answer.

comment Project size vs. Team size
@benhowdle89 If your idea is good enough, I don't think you should have trouble finding a buddy programmer who is as passionate about your idea as you. If you are not able to find even one then there are always sites like StackOverflow which can help you out in tough situations.

@Mathhew When you are setting up a company, you have to follow some government regulations. For example, in India you have to obtain Permanent Account Number (PAN) from Income Tax Department, obey Shop and Establishments Act, etc. All these formalities require a correspondence address (preferably on your company's letterhead). So you do need an office. I am sorry if I am not as clear as I should be, but hey I am not a legal expert. :)

@ChrisF Yes. I have registered it. But the splash screen still says so. Very misleading, must say!
