WEBSITE OF THE DAY: Twiangulate

Despite a name that borders on something from Twenty Twelve (“twandanas, anyone…?) this is one of the more interesting tools to analyse Twitter and where you sit within its landscape.

With almost every mainstream news story, comment piece and feature now coming with a hashtag or an explicit call to follow, it’s no surprise that people might want to scratch beneath the surface to see what all their tweeting and following actually means.

At twiangulate.com you can generate a visual analysis of the hidden relationships that are a big part of how Twitter operates. Who follows whom, and what do they say to each other? How many of their followers are worth following? 

By inserting up to three usernames, you can see in an instant the connections between those accounts and how they compare to each other directly.

This is one way to separate the twits from the Twitterati.
