Release Notes

v 1.0.1

Chart dynamically resizes on window resize.

v 1.0

CSS styling added.

v 0.0.6

Added similarity score. FtT now compares all tweets it collects (the last 200) and see how many tweets are repeated and how many are similar to each other (over a 75% similarity rating). Similarity is calculated using the ruby gem similar_text.

v 0.0.5

Updated the way FtT goes to the results page, using a get request instead of post. Users can now bookmark or share specific user's results pages.

v 0.0.4

Added support for an interactive chart on the results page. The chart graphs the last 30 days of tweets on a line chart so it is easy to visually view a user's activity.

v 0.0.3

The tweets per day algorithm has been updated to take into account days when the user does not tweet. This results in a more accurate tweets per day number with two decimal places.

v 0.0.2

FtT now handles errors. If you input a twitter account that is either protected or suspended the app won't crash and will notify you.

FtT also detects how many tweets include links vs simple text content so you can see which tweeters are directing you to new and interesting content.

v 0.0.1

App launched!
