This is the result of an exercise we did in our spare time; we call it Twitter Compass. The objective was to build a project that we could complete quickly and build in iterations. We set aside some time and went from ideation to design to development inside of a week.

The resulting chart is a type of Twitter fingerprint: your active times + how wordy you are can be compared to others. Additionally, we noticed that an authentic user posts much more evenly throughout the day, but a bot or paid intern has their tweets scheduled at specific times.

This was a fun, quick project. There are more robust Twitter visualization tools that exist, but there are none that are prettier.
