A picture is worth a thousand words and visual.ly helps pick out most of them for you. Visual.ly’s twitterizer is definitely an image of inspiration and is worth a mouthful of tweets. I just twitterized myself this morning and saw a visual representation of where I stand in the whole twittersphere: not very high. It makes me realize, that much more, how easily one’s personality and interests are gauged through their presence on Facebook and Twitter. Just like how brands measure sentiment from Facebook posts and Tweets, Twitterizer and other tools can sum up a person’s interests, mood, and popularity.
What does my twitter data generated infographic say about me? Geeky smile, techie, happy posts, and not one of the popular twitterers in the grand scheme of things. Although, I have a ways to go to get more followers and site traffic, it’s nice to know my interests are accurately represented and positive. The only thing visual.ly got wrong are the unflattering cargo pants and overall poor fashion sense. So, next time you think about making a twitter post (especially negative or controversial) think about how it makes your infographic look!
Along with the twitterizer, visual.ly is working on some tools to allow users to create their own infographics whether it be about a company, product, or event.
