New Features!!!

November 13, 2008 at 8:58 am 3 comments

I’ll never convince everybody that this is not a phishing site, but one thing I can do is to try and make it better. So, I’m staying up late to bring you new features. Yay!

Prettier URLs

You can see your (and other people’s) Twitterank by creating URLs like this:

http://twitterank.com/view/%5Btwitterid%5D
e.g. http://twitterank.com/view/t_rank

Where do I stand?

I got a ton of feedback asking “What’s the number mean? Is this good or bad?” That’s my bad. I used the word “rank” but didn’t actually give you a ranking. That’s changed now. Under your score, you’ll see text that says “aprox. XXX percentile”. For example @t_rank currently has a score of 86.41, and “aprox. 83.12 percentile”. That means t_rank has a score higher than approximately 83.12% of twitterers that Twitterank knows about. This ranking is pretty fluid, and will change depending on your score and the distribution of scores in the system.

    @hiousi it might be a DNS caching issue. where you are, twitterank.com might still be pointing at my old server, which doesn’t support the new URLs. it might take up to a day or so for the DNS to update, but it should work eventually.

    You are doing a great job scoring based on the conversations on twitter. Isn’t it all about conversations in a social setting that states the status of a person? 🙂

    In addition to scoring against just the # of tweets vs # replies of a person, if you also figure out how many people one replies to & gets replies from, I guess that would be cool too!
