Create a Wordle With Your TweetCloud

| Comments

Despite working myself like a horse recently, I still somehow find the time to hack on TweetStats every once in a while. I’m not really sure what motivates me so much to work on a site that generates zero revenue and has little practical use…but it’s fun and it distracts me from all those other things I should be doing.

Well TweetStats was mentioned in an article about Twitter tools that was on the front page of Digg recently. Fortunately, I moved the background processes that do a lot of the heavy lifting to a better server a couple months ago and TweetStats handled the 400% increase in usage like a champ. While perusing all the new users, I saw one guy that created a Wordle from his TweetCloud.

This was something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, and with that little motivation and new knowledge of Wordle’s advanced tools page … I tossed in some extra code, and added a link to create your own Wordle from your TweetCloud. Fun stuff. Here’s mine.
