Twitter Lists as Tags

Posted in Uncategorized by squarecog on November 11, 2009

I created a toy script that is based on the idea that when people list twitter users in lists, they are implicitly tagging those users. Using the Twitter API, it’s dead simple to extract the lists a user belongs to, do a tiny bit of parsing, and visualize the tags in a word cloud. So I did it. Let me know what you think: TwitTags.
