About the author.

Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

I saw the “Twitter Mosaic” on renagerie.com, who tipped the hat to libragirl.  Evidently, this tool creates a bunch of HTML code you can stick in your blog that creates a mosaic of your followers.

So, I did that, and here are my comments / questions so far:

  • I thought it would give me a simple graphic to host on my blog, but it actually generates a bunch of links and image tags that go to Amazon’s system.  That means that when you go to a blog with a twitter mosaic, it’s actually pulling images from Amazon’s S3 service.  That’s both weird and cool – weird that I need to depend on an outside system to be working for my blog to function; and cool because it reduces the load from my server.
  • I couldn’t find out the logic behind the order – is it using the number of @replies?  Does it count how many tweets that person does?  Is it taking into account any “favorites”?  Is it anything but random?  Maybe it’s the order in which you followed people or the other way around… 
  • Evidently you can make the mosaic from followers or friends, so I guess you can rate your level of narcisism. 
  • This reminded me, but only a little, of the wordles I made from all my tweets.  I feel like doing that again for some reason, but for some other reason I won’t.

Without further ado, here’s my twitter mosaic:

This was fun!

Ok, in case you actually wanted to see my real twitter mosaic, here it is.  I had to delete some of them because they were, how shall I say… too graphic?  One of them was a not-so-flattering snapshot of Britney Spears.

Get your twitter mosaic here.

And lo, the people did comment thus:

    I must say, your first Twitter Mosaic is probably the hottest, most stunningly sexy and good-looking Twitter mosaic I’ve ever seen!

    Oh… and just so you know, people were saying nice things about you at ConFab. 🙂

      Dave2 – saying nice things about me at Confab, eh? Did any of this happen to get on tape? (and by tape you know I mean by digital media)

      Were they saying how good I am at selecting blog friends? 🙂

    For some reason I am strangely entranced by the picture where Dave is wearing the cutesy red bonnet.

    Can’t… look… away….

    I couldn’t get my eyes off of the one of the bonnet either.

    I like the second one better. I’m on that one along with all the cool kids. It’s like when I was in high school except this time I’m included.

    • whall says:

      marilyn – yeah, I’m glad you’re there too. and you’re one of the few people who participate in utterz, which I appreciate.

Want to Reply to Janna?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.
