Is it possible to build an iOS Twitter app manipulates the data it found?

    I want to build a App that monitors Nike's twitter page from 8:00am - 8:10am. It would be looking for a tweet with a pre-determined set of strings.

    If it finds a match, it will launch the link associated with the tweet, add the product to the cart, and relay a notification to the user that the product has been added to cart.

    You don't have to go into explicit detail, but the fundamentals of how exactly this app would work would be great. The first part of scanning for tweets, would be relatively easy but manipulating the javascript data inside an app is what makes me doubt my idea.

    Anybody? :(

    I'm 16, and I really want to build this app. I just signed up and paid $99 for the Apple Dev Kit & $25 for Lynda's course for iOS Development. (I did run through Apple's Getting Started First, made a To-Do-List :D)

    I don't see why not. Your app could read Nike's Twitter RSS feed. Read a tutorial on how to make an RSS feed reader, but ignore anything related to displaying it.
