some twitter users do…and we’ve made it easy to find them (or for them to find themselves and realize a problem).
Last night Alex Rudloff approached me about doing some visual cleanup on a little hack-fest he had put tgether called Twitterholic. It simply scrapes the public timeline and dumps stats to a database, and then displays the users with the highest number of followers. Over time, the numbers will get more accurate and interesting…and there are plenty of fun ideas for the aggregate date collected in the works.
Of course, some of our friends aren’t thrilled with what we did…but you know, if someone had to do it, aren’t you glad it’s us? At least we’ll use our powers for good. Besides…we didn’t make it for money. Or recognition. It was totally a goof, totally fun, and like it’s big brother “Twitter”, will continue to be a social experiment to see what kinds of numbers and trends we can uncover.
Alex and I love twitter too. For better or for worse.
