Screenshot of Twittersheep word cloud for peterkaminski

It came out pretty good, I think – it looks like a good representation of my followers.

Tip: the placement of particular words is random.  If you don’t like the way the words are arranged when you try it, reload the page to change the arrangement.

Threads on Twitter Pages Mon, 23 Feb 2009 20:11:19 +0000 pete If you’re like me and still use the Twitter web interface for at least some of your tweet consumption, you might like this great little [[GreaseMonkey]] script: “Nested Twitter Threads” by Pratham Kumar.

When you’re reading tweets on the Twitter site, the script recursively grabs the previous messages in any @reply threads on the page, and inserts them in-place on the web page.


Because Twitter doesn’t actually track threads, Nested Twitter Threads has the same problem as other Twitter threaders do, that it uses the most recent previous post as the reply, but it generally works okay, and having the thread right there on the Twitter page is really super.
