There is a running debate amongst Twitter users regarding follower count. Some prefer to have quality over quantity, while others want as many followers as possible. If you’re part of the latter, TwitterLeague is for you.
TwitterLeague is a service that creates groups of people (leagues) competing for the highest follower count. Users sign into TwitterLeague and create leagues of tweeters, forming a mini competition.
How does TwitterLeague work?
To show how TwitterLeague works, I created a league below of Capetonian tweeters from my Twitterstream*.
What’s the point of TwitterLeague?
TwitterLeague is, as I see it, purely for entertainment. Having a large follower count on Twitter doesn’t mean your content is better than the next person… it just means you have more potential eyeballs on your content. Mainly, it’s always nice to have a bit of competitive fun with friends.
* If you want to be removed from the league, please give me a shout via Twitter DM or via the contact page to be removed. Also, if you would like to be added to the league, do the same. 🙂
Twitter’s API has been used extensively by a variety of services, from applications to monitor your Twitterstream, all the way through to an exclusive “hot or not” style website for the Twitterverse. TwitterLeague is another interesting use of Twitter’s API. I’m interested to see what comes out next.
Have you used TwitterLeague or any other interesting Twitter services? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
