Twitter fun

Last Friday I attend the IPSA meeting on Social Media. That got me interested in two products: Twitter and ooVoo.

I've now got a Twitter account using the nickname neversleep360. For which I got curious about the reach of Twitter. So I wrote a quick ruby script to search out Friends and Friends of Friends, then score everything they were following based on the number of Friends/FriendsX2 following. This should point out nicks of common interest. Also, I found several interesting nicks sitting out in the wings.

I've posted everything on my wiki at Twitter Friends of Friends. One interesting result is the number of links to BarackObama. Personally I'm not a fan of BarackObama; but it is interesting to see him score highly among this circle of friends on Twitter.
