Twitterest – Silverlight Twitter Status

I have been using Twitter more lately to keep up to date with colleagues, family and friends. Twitter has a nice simple interface, and a good programming API. With all of this, I have written Twitterest to blend Silverlight, the Twitter REST API and some server side C# to cache the Twitter API responses.


Twitterest shows statistics for people in my “Following” group, including the number of posts that each has made, the number of people in their friends list and the the number of people following them. People are sorted by a selected criteria and the ranking is displayed in a spiral. The larger the count the further along the spiral and the larger the persons button is. Clicking on a criteria button loads the latest stats for that criteria.

The latest Twitterest can be found at
