Twiangulate discovers hidden tweeters, friends of friends (or friends of enemies), micro-influentials who only insiders follow... or sometimes just friends you haven't yet seen tweeting.
Twitter's SUL and its new "user generated" Lists are monocular glimpses of a dynamic, multi-dimensional world. We need tools that express the insights and judgments of small groups, rather than of single individuals or giant crowds.
Services like Twitterholic do an excellent job of tracking power-tweeters like Barack and Perez. The people that Twiangulate pinpoints may often be obscure, but we think they're anything but unimportant. By definition, these people are followed by two or three people you are already interested in, so they're more likely to be important to you than those Twitter stars everybody follows.
The team behind Pressflex and Blogads, led by @hc, with @megwegk310, @kaleycatherine, and @JNSiracusa. We designed the original Twiangulate to serve our own needs and since then have responded to friends' requests for additional features.
We want to focus on meaningful results. @BarackObama follows 740,646 people, and as far as we can tell, their names and distribution is pretty much random. Same for other tweeps who follow 10s or 100s of thousands of people.
Friends = people someone follows. We originally used the word "followee" but this sounded too arcane and "friends" is the term used in the API.
Try some of the following combinations and maybe you'll get it: ev + biz + jack, carr2n + jayrosen_nyu + jeffjarvis, PerezHilton + ParisHilton + iamdiddy, markos + maddow + michellemalkin, TEDchris + SteveCase + pierre, robcorddry + rainnwilson + SarahKSilverman, hc + Jason + nicknotned or jimmy_wales + kevinrose + Caterina.
This map shows two-way follows, so if the searchee isn't following a big follower back, the link isn't displayed.
