    Pros: 

    Straight to the point analysis

    Cons: 

    would like if it did the same for Instagram

    I have used keyhole and social blade. I think Follor.me goes a bit deeper than those and I can only see them getting better.

    Abel A. Hernandez has used this product for one week.

Hi @kovshenin, I'm also a WordPress developer and I'm interested in understanding the use of WordPress to build this product. Can you give more details about how, or what for, you used WordPress? Thanks in advance. Congrats! Really nice tool!

@s3rgiosan Foller.me wasn't always on WordPress. The initial version was built in Python on Google App Engine ( https://github.com/kovshenin/fol... ), then moved to Django + MySQL, then I rewrote it in bare PHP and MySQL and hosted it on AWS, and only a couple years later I made it into a WordPress theme + plugin. The main reason was to show people that WordPress can be used for many things that are not "just a blog." This was quite a while ago and there are many more great examples now. In terms of how, it's pretty simple. It's a plugin + theme combo (could have been just a theme) with some functions for routing requests, performing calls to the Twitter API, storing and displaying the data. The data is stored/cached in wp_posts and wp_postmeta. These tend to get big pretty quickly so I have a WP_Cron task deleting very old entries a few times every day. I use tags (terms) to be able to filter by language, as well as get certain stats. If you have any more specific questions, will be happy to share!

I first discovered Foller.me three weeks ago and I can't stop using it now! It gives you a lot of very useful insights on the audience and the type of content shared by any Twitter public profile so that you can focus on the precise topics, even exact words that your target is using to create successful Twitter Marketing Campaigns 👊 It's an amazing tool, go on give it a try and share your feedback 😺

Really nice! Would be great to see in separate section when someone talks about searched profile (like @mentions).
