The followers march, leap and even dance to a really good music score. Sometimes they even tweet when they are doing all this. The thought to detail in the app is simply astounding. This is an experience that you don’t want to miss.
Twitnest – view the twitter universe
Twitnest is a powerful application that not only allows you to view your followers, but also the rest of the Twitter universe. All you need to do is type your username and then choose what you wish to see; a list of your followers, anyone who is following you, anyone tweeting from a certain location and almost anything else. You can search for like minded people or groups with this application as well. The Twitnest displays all the information you selected in a graph made out of profile pictures of people piled together. The end result is brilliant; and the possibilities of all that you could do with this application are endless.
