Who's tweeting the most?

In an effort to learn a bit more about the Twitter API I decided to set myself a little weekend project to try and create something with the data available.

I'm used to working with PHP and found this pretty solid PHP library which gave me a good base with which to get started on. If you use another programming language, the Twitter developers site has a comprehensive list of other libraries available.

After hacking around for a while, I eventually decided to set a little task of aggregating tweets from individual accounts in my stream, that way I could the find out who was tweeting the most in my feed. Slightly random I know but it was more about experimenting with the data!

Here is the result: Find out who's tweeting the most in your Twitter stream

The more tweets someone has, the larger their profile picture will be (there's a maximum size set for the image to stop them from taking over the page).

It's just a bit of fun really but it has been incredibly valuable as a learning experience, just like viewing tweets in my calendar I think it's always useful to see data presented in a different manner every so often.

Rewilding the planet with animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every animation project over £1000 a donation of 2% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around 12 Acres of vital habitats around the world.
