+1 for requesting the bare minimum permissions from my Twitter account. It's not often I see that.
A few commments:
- 11's Tweets are too small to read.
- How does it classify users who @reply a lot (not @mention) but write very few "public" Tweets? (As an example, have a look at @atebits.)
Edit: Just realized the effect is better when you skim fast through the timeline.
I wonder if there isn't another method of sorting you could do. I have few friends so don't know about the large scale application. But possibly sorting them into friends and having their pictures sized differently based on posts. And then click on the picture and you can scroll through their posts. Something along the lines of showing the post from that friend who rarely posts without scrolling down to find it.
Oddly though, I found that the prolific tweeters were the ones I wanted to see, and the infrequent ones were less interesting. I have a core of prolific users (none of whom I have met) that I follow because I like their content, and then an outer constellation of people I follow because I know them. Tweets from the former actually have a better signal-to-noise. Is mine an unusual usage pattern for Twitter?
The 'light' accounts I follow are mostly personal ones whom I'm interested in. This isn't a bad concept but I would rather it 'highlight' the less-tweeters among us and leave the standard ones alone.
e.g. highlight but don't detract from the busier folks. Probably proves useful for a lot of people but not for me.
Did anyone else see the title and think that it was a new shell?
Scaling up/down might be a bit of problem though. I'm not sure if this logic fits here:
You're shrinking down the tweets of the people who are more frequent,and vice-versa.The first time I used Shuu.sh I didn't notice much(my bad), but after a couple of time turning it on and off, I noticed what is happening.
Will it not make more sense to limit the 'number' of tweets shown based upon the frequency of the tweeter? And the number being decided based upon number or retweets of that tweet or something? Giving user an option of how many tweets from a person of specific frequency would he like to see or determining it on the basis of how many he is following and how many are following those who are being followed by this user.
Uggh.. I just realized, I made it sound more complex that it really is. Umm.. sorry for that ! :D
The people who I follow that don't tweet don't seem to be any more (or less) interesting than anyone else so I'm not sure I'll use it anyway but its a clever idea.
I don't understand why this app needs to access my direct messages.
I'm gonna have to use a fake account.
