Tweepler – organizing your tweeps

Tweepler aims to simplify the task of getting new followers and trying to decide if you should follow them back or not.  I am suffering from this currently with a great influx of followers.  I wish I had time to go through each one and see what they post and start tuning my filters.  Tweepler makes some good claims:

Simplistic and Intuitive Interface: We’ve made it simple and enjoyable to process your new followers and to access those you’re already following.

Reduce Clutter: Archive followers out of the way by placing them in the Ignore bucket and never having to look at them again!

Save Time: View detailed stats for new followers, eliminating the need to go to each individual profile and further speeding up the decision process.

So I went ahead and logged into the site to see how it worked for me.  I watched the screencast before I started and then let it rip.  It estimates 1 minute per 1000 combined of following and followers.  I totaled over 1000 but below 2000 and it finished on about 60 seconds.  So far so good.  Once it you get 3 columns to work with.

The left column is people you already follow.  The far right column is an ignore feature.  It does not block users on Twitter, just moves them to a place where you know you looked at them.  The crux of everything is the huge middle column.  I don’t suggest tackling this in one day.  There is too much information.

Not only to you get to see the avatar and name, you get their profile from twitter and a More details action.  This is where it gets interesting.  I see a sample of your immediate previous tweets, how many you follow, how many follow you and the ratio.  One bug so far is that if their Twitter description is too long, the more details button is hidden.  For some people I could just see the edge of it, so it must be character count.  This was in Firefox browser for anyone keeping score.

Now once you move people around you can always move them again.  I tested this a few times.  So basically you get a quick sorting for your followers and those you follow.  It even sorts the listing by the people most recently folowing you which is great.

So overall I am liking it but it will take some time to get through everyone.
