Tweetroot - App Review



If you're using Twitter and want to get a better handle on the content then, this could well be an App right up your street.

The developer describes it as 'get to the root of Twitter by creating word clouds to visualize the most frequent words being tweeted. Read between the tweets and discover what a @user tweets about the most or what reactions a #hashtag is generating.'

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The first thing you need to do is authorise the App to have access to your Twitter account.

Having done that, it is simplicity itself then choose one of the icons at the bottom of the page to:

Enter a Twitter user to create a word cloud based on their 1,000 most recent Tweets
Enter a hashtag to create a word cloud based on recent Tweets
Enter a Twitter user to create a word cloud based Tweets mentioning the user

You can easily set colour schemes, font, maximum words (in the cloud you are creating), placement order (random or based on frequency), and whether or not to allow vertical words.

Your result can then easily share this information.

Cost
The App costs a nominal $1.

Indispensability
This obviously depends on the use you make of Twitter. It really is useful in rapidly creating clouds that give you a handle on what is trending, as well as the ability to share this pictorial information.

Dependability
I checked out my Tweets regarding this blog and saw 'app' and 'review' as the biggest hitters, just as expected.

Security
You need to give the App access to your Twitter account but, it is only harvesting information that is already visible to other Twitter users.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Easily create Twitter info cards.
