During development of our new iPhone game, Poptweets, we realized that we were going to be generating a wealth of data about celebrities, their twitter habits and how people perceive them. This was when we came up with an idea for a website that would set that data free in interesting and fun ways.
Poptweets.net gives you the Poptweets experience right in the comfort of your browser. You can track the tweets of all the hottest celebrities on Twitter, discover heavy hitters that you might not have heard of yet and interact with them.
One word you’ll see all over the site is “Iconic”. This is a measure of how recognizable a celebrity’s tweets are according to the players of our game. That’s right: simply by playing the game, you are powering Poptweets.net.
As well, we have added features that take advantage of the meta data contained in tweets. A good example of this is location data. Many tweets contain location data nowadays, so we figured why not plot that on a Google Map when it is available?
We have a long list of features that we’re going to be adding to the site and the iPhone game so check back often. We would also like to hear what you think so don’t be a stranger.
