Twitter does not make it easy to access the RSS feed for an account, in fact you need to dig around to find a method to access the RSS stream. The method I am using here is via the Twitter API and uses the screen name (screen_name=XXXXXX);
To make a Wordle for @WeMelbourne we can use; http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?screen_name=WeMelbourne. This RSS feed is then input into http://www.wordle.net/create to give the Wordle.
This leads to good things.

* Qantas competition hashtag hijacked [The Australian]
* PR experts said the campaign was perhaps Australia’s greatest public relations failure and a classic example of the dangers of unpredictable social media.
– Epic fail for Qantas Twitter competition [Reuters]
Checking my tweet stream on the way into work this morning, and there as bold as day is a tweet from me – that I didn’t send! Now this is a pretty bad discovery, it would appear that my Twitter account has been used to send spam;
How embarrassing, it would appear that I have been hacked. Off to Twitter I go and change my password.
After some further investigation, having a look through my authorised apps and there is one from 21 hours ago that I do not remember authorising. So my spam is most likely via a bad twitter app. No so much hacked as hijacked.
If affected by a bad app, revoke it at https://twitter.com/settings/applications AND change your password.
As part of the cleanup I also deleted the tweets from both Twitter and FriendFeed to make sure they are not available for someone to accidentally follow the links.
I will need to schedule regular checks of the authorised apps.

Twanalyst analyses your Twitter profile and your last 100 tweets (if you’ve written that many yet) – then makes some sweeping judgements about your personality based on how often you tweet, how many friends and followers you have, the content of your tweets and so on. There are more than 30,000 different possible results the site can give. If you’re offended by what it says – don’t be: it’s just a bit of fun, dude! On a more serious note, the site also analyses the above to make some practical suggestions as to how you can improve your tweeting or increase your follower count. Thanks for trying it out, and enjoy!
- READABILITY: The readability figure is based on the Automated Readability Index – this looks at the length of sentences and individual words you use to assess the complexity of the writing. A score between about 6 and 12 represents normal prose: below is simplistic and above is technical or obscure. 14 – ok I’m technical, so sue me
- TYPE: BOFFIN (7%) – someone whose language is generally advanced or technical
