Do you Twitter? Are you one of those people who writes once every couple of weeks, or are you someone who posts 100 times a day? How irritating are you to follow on Twitter?
Interesting questions, to be sure, but it’s not my attempt to take a potshot at anyone. Instead, I’m introducing this neat little website I came across a couple of weeks ago called Follow Cost. If you’re on Twitter, what you do is plug your Twitter name into it, let it do some calculations, and it’ll give you a quick statistic showing you what the average number of updates people are making on Twitter, and the average number you’re making over your last 100 posts.
Now, here’s the thing. If your close to the average, you only get the statistic. For instance, right now the average is 13.32 milliscobles, and my average is 12.18. However, a couple of weeks when I ran the figure, my milliscobles was around 48, and I got this sound that sounded like an atomic bomb, and the page shook and flickered with colors as it there was an explosion. It would seem the holiday and the trip across the country has slowed me up a little bit.
Anyway, if you’re on Twitter, why not check it out and have a little fun with it. I’m wondering if anything happens if one hardly ever uses it; someone try it and let me know.
