Friday Foolery [27] Twitter Parade

11 06 2010

There are many Twitter-apps that show “how you are doing” on Twitter.  They show your ranking, your interaction with others, the words you tweet the most, etc. (see this post)

Twitter Parade ( is more of a fun tool. If you fill in a name, i.e. laikas you see all your followers literally following you in a parade. Some are tweeting.
The first time I saw it I really had to laugh. It is fun to see a very serious doctor applauding or to see Dr. Shock barking as a dog.

You also realize that >1500 followers is really a lot. There is no end to the row.

Instead of  a name you can also fill in a keyword.

Since doesn’t allow scripts I embedded a YouTube video instead.

But it is more fun to try the Twitter parade yourself here (the page takes some time to load).
Perhaps you can find me walking, jumping, clapping there… for you.
