Inspired by Twitter Hovercards, this bookmarklet was made to help me quickly view the data of Twitter accounts plus their Topsy influence score before I decide to follow them.
- Drag this bookmarklet to your browser toolbar to get started
- Highlight a Twitter username on the page like these: TechCrunch , smashingmag
- Click the bookmarklet..
* For Google Chrome: If your Bookmarks Bar isn’t enabled, press "Ctrl-Shift-B" to turn it on. Then drag the bookmarklet above into the Bookmarks Bar.
Powered ByBookmarklet uses Twitter API to displays account data like website, bio, number of Tweets/Followers. Also, uses Topsy API to return the Influence score of Twitter accounts which is described on "Influence: The Social Web Currency".
This is another time Topsy API proved to be very handy. Check other stuff I made based on Topsy like "Twitter rank of websites".
Bookmarklet was tested in major browsers like Firefox 2.5, Google Chrome 8, IE 7, Safari 4, Opera 10.
