I’m about to go to bed, because I really really need sleep. Today was pretty quiet, fortunately, and by tomorrow, most of Twitterdom will have forgotten about Twitterank. Thank goodness for short attention spans. So this evening, all you’re getting is a redesign (thanks @redct), and a new Tweet for those of you with scores in the upper 80th percentile (BTW, the latest version says “XX% of twitterers” instead of “XX% of you”, because the latter wording makes your ego seem more inflated than it should be).
Also, I experimented with a Twitterank algorithm that uses an API that doesn’t require authentication, but some crucial information is lost in that case, and the scores are 1) low and 2) less meaningful, which is no good. I have another idea I’ll try tomorrow, but for now it’s back to the old algorithm.
