Happy Tweets Ranks the Happy Tweeps

Happy Tweets runs the numbers on your most recent tweets to see how happy you are. Are you ready for this optimistic meme to sweep through the Twittersphere?

Happy Tweets is a measuring stick for how positive, or happy, a particular Tweep is, developed by Tim (@u2elan), a guy with a personal interest in computational linguistics.

Happy Tweets Ranking Website

How It Works

When you hit the site, plug in your own username or the name of one of your friends. The app then does some calculations based on what you say and how you say it, then gives you a rating of how happy you are perceived to be by other users. If you want to tweak how you tweet so that you appear a bit more positive, Happy Tweets will store your ratings each time you come back and plans to show some sort of trending with these numbers over time.

Microblink's Happyscore for Twitter

Is It Safe?

Happy Tweets doesnt ask for your password because it doesnt need it to scan your past tweets. The information they use and store about you is all publically available data accessible through the Twitter API.

How Do I Share My Happyscore?

So now that you know what your Happyscore is, we know youre dying to share it with your friends. Happy Tweets provides a retweet link that has the information prefilled for you that takes you to the Twitter web interface where you can preview and post the message. This is much less intrusive than giving up your username and password on the Happy Tweets site and having them post it automatically (as some sites have taken to doing lately).
