This site is based on the simple idea that people's tweets comprise a body of work. As writers, we want to organize that work in ways other than temporally (like twitter) or by banality popularity (like favstar). Each author chooses a set of topics that they write about, and they tag each tweet with one or more of these topics. Readers are only shown tagged tweets, so authors can easily filter out any tweets by simply not tagging them.
Here is an example: delict.us/alfageeek
If you are an author, and you would like to tag your own tweets, you can create a corpus. Your corpus also allows you to search for tweets by words used.
This site assumes you are using a modern browser. If things are not working, get up to date.
Delictus is Latin for failure. So “corpus delicti” literally translates to “body of failure.” Corpus Delicti is Latin for Twitter Timeline.— α geek (@alfageeek) October 23, 2013
