"Discovery requires a twitter following between 100 and 10,000 users" 😔 #humblebrag

@rrhoover I kind of wish it operated on ALL of my followers, not just 10K. Makes the value of the experience a little more limited, but I get they have to try to convert users to customers some how.

Very cool! This reminds me of LinkedIn's inlabs visualization of your networks, which I miss (they sunset it a while ago).

@gillianim ditto, it really sucks that they shut down that feature, it was incredibly useful!

Hi! I'm one of the developers with Affinio. We're really excited to be launching Discovery; it's a quick/lightweight version of our full segmentation tool. The hope is to be able to analyze a user's following and use machine learning to figure out how their followers are distinct (if your followers all had a house party, who would be hanging out with whom?). Hope you enjoy it! Happy to answer any / all questions about the product.

@phil_renaud really cool stuff. i'm impressed. Can you tell me a lil more about that crazy colored dot D3 visualization? Are all those nodes 1 to 1 real followers? and what do the connected lines mean, that they follow that other person? Really cool

@drawby Hi @drawby, glad you liked it! The network graph visualization is representational, but not 1:1 (our graphs have a max node count anywhere from 300 to 1500, depending on your device type). The connected lines represent, between groups, shared influencers; and within a group, likelihood of a given user knowing other users. It's a simpler model than we use when generating graphs for (which can have up to 20 groups), but it tells the same sort of story.
