TweetyPants: How smart are your Twitter friends?

May 18 2009

Are your Twitter friends smarty-pantses? Today I am releasing TweetyPants, a tool that uses QueryPath, OpenAmplify, and Twitter to evaluate a user's posts for three things:

  • Style: The more verbose and flowery one's prose is, the higher the score.
  • Shizzle: The more slang a post has, the higher the score.
  • Smarts: The more educated one's tweets are, the higher the score.

Along with scoring a Twitter account against these three categories, TweetyPants also tells you what that person has been recently tweeting about.

So enter the name of a Twitter friend and see how smart your friends are.
