Visit Tweep's website
For each Follower of the "Tweep" you are trying to unlock information is retrieved from Twitter. The number of followers, friends ("following") and tweets are used to do some math. Then each follower is represented in the graph by a dot.
The more tweets a follower has tweeted the more the tweep will be displayed to the right on the x-axis. The scale of the x-axis is logarithmic. When two "dots" (eg. followers) have similar values the graph will reposition the dot second dot as close to the first one in a random angle, on the next space available.
The more "friends" the follower has ("following") the higher the tweep will be displayed on the y-axis (vertical). As with the x-axis the scale is logarithmic.
The size of the dots indicate the amount of followers for each follower. The bigger the dot is the more followers. Again on a logarithmic scale.
Colors of the dots range from light-blue to green. The color is defined by the ratio followers/friends.
Is the Tweep you are unlocking.
If you want to learn more.
Once you've unlocked a Tweep you see all these "dots" on your screen. On the top right of your screen you can type in a Tweeps name to find him/her in the graph
Hover over one of the dots and you'll see more information. Also included are some links that will take you to the Twitter feed of the tweep, to the personal website (if available) and most important: allows you to "Unlock" that particular Tweep.
If you feel all these dots are a bit small: get a bigger screen!
Your business is not our business. This web-application works entirely on your machine. We do not ask for passwords, nor do we store any information on our servers.
Since the application is not authenticated with the Twitter API it cannot retrieve information about Tweeps that have protected their tweets. This could be considered a fault or a feature.
When you are trying to retrieve information about a Tweep that is protected you will be asked for authentication through a standard dialog. The information you enter will only be transmitted to the Twitter API and nowhere else.
We feel the graph is fun and informative. Specially if you are a growing "Tweep" you can use the graph to find who are your important followers in terms of their activity (number of tweets the sent), their involvement in groups (the ration followers/following) and their influence (how many followers do they have).
It's up to you to use the information the graph provides. You could use it to "unfollow" certain people. You could also try to get involved with your most important tweeps. Or you could sit back and enjoy the graph.
BIG and Green and on the rigth side! The bigger the circle, the more followers the tweep has. The more green the color, the better is the ratio followers/following. This is a tweep that has an opinion and is listened to. An opinion maker. If this tweep reads your tweets and retweets them you are in the inner-circle.
Probably not. When drawing the graph we cannot put two dots in the same place (one might not be visible/selectable). In that case the second dot will be moved to the next available position. The movement is done along a random angle. Therefore sometimes you can see funny things. Try to unlock the same Tweep again on a larger screen (you could even try to "zoom out" your browser).
