Are you a tweeter or a retweeter?

Hi everyone! A while ago I made a small app on glitch that tells you, based on posts from your user profile, if you are a tweeter or retweeter and generates a downloadable graphic based on that!

Twit Original

Why?

I kept seeing people talk about being super creative and original with their tweets. I wanted a way to actually quantify that in a fun way.

Kanye West is a Tweeter

Possible future plans

  • Making sharing easier: be able to draft a tweet with the generated graphic directly from the site.

  • Comparing results: a database of the results and have an (opt-in) collection of all the generated graphics.

  • Non-binary scale: Instead of retweeter or tweeter have maybe super retweeter > retweeter > perfect balance > tweeter > super tweeter to make the results more specific.

You can check it out here!

And you can remix! (remix on glitch is essentially making a fork and putting your spin on the project)

I'm interested, does this include replies to tweets? And are retweets with comments counted as tweets or retweets?

Really cool project idea, and those illustrations are sick! 👌

Future idea: Have a longest tweet and retweet streak leaderboard.

thank you! illustrations were done by my friend Jinjin (instagram.com/thejinjin/)

Retweets with comments are counted as tweets (with a link to another tweet)

and yes that's a great idea!!
