Connect With Your “TwellowHood”
One of the great things about Twellow is it allows you to find people with similar interests who you can follow and interact with. One of the other great things about Twellow is it allows you to find people in certain locations. We’ve taken the second great thing and made it even better…
TwellowHood is a brand-new feature for Twellow that allows you to “Connect with your TwellowHood“. TwellowHood gives you a map that you can use to find local people. By simply clicking on the TwellowHood map, you can “drill-down” into a list of cities and towns in your area that have other Twellow users in them. Want to see how many people say they are in your city? TwellowHood can help.
How Does It Work?
To use TwellowHood go to the main TwellowHood map at www.twellow.com/twellowhood. This will display a map of the United States (for people outside of the U.S., other countries are coming soon so keep watching this blog. We haven’t forgotten you!). By placing your mouse over any particular state you’ll see the state name and a count of the users we’ve positively identified as being in that state. Clicking the state will zoom in to show you the top-ten cities for the state on the map, as well as a list of all cities that have users in them. The list of cities can be sorted by the number of people or alphabetically.
Once you’re down to this level you can then click on either the map icons or the city name in the list to go to a page listing each user found. Here you can view and choose the people you want to follow, just as you can in our category listings on Twellow. The map can also be dragged and zoomed so you can see the top-ten cities better, or to make it easier to see smaller states and Washington D.C.
A Worldwide Affair
As I mentioned earlier the map is currently only for the United States. We are well aware that Twitter and social-media are a worldwide affair, so we are actively working to add other countries. We’ll keep you posted as these come online.
In addition to international maps we’re also going to be tweaking and adding more features that will make the TwellowHood feature even better, so be sure to keep your eye on the Twellow blog, and follow our Twitter update users at @twellowup.
It’s our goal here at Twellow to help you find people who matter, and thousands of people are using Twellow to do just that. TwellowHood further enhances your ability to find those people on a local level, and we’ll continue to work hard to help you “Connect with your TwellowHood“!
