Otherside for Twitter

Otherside creates a Twitter List of the accounts someone follows, letting you see Twitter from their perspective.

Inspired by this post, and twitter goggles.

Also check out the standalone command line version.

Caveats

  • Lists can only contain up to 5,000 accounts.
  • Private accounts you don’t follow will be skipped.
  • Twitter’s API has a rate limit on the number of GET requests that can be made in a 15 minute window.
  • Twitter has a follow limit of 1,000 per day, and 5,000 total.
    • It looks like this applies to lists, but Twitter doesn't clarify.

Running

  • Create a new Twitter app → https://apps.twitter.com/
  • Edit config.ru and add your app's consumer key and consumer secret, and create a secret for the cookie
