Minor Twelebs Update

14 Apr

I migrated Twelebs today and in doing so, refreeshed myself on how it's set up. I forgot how simple it is to add celebs, just by adding them to a single Twitter account; the images auto-update after a propagation delay. The only thing missing for each of them is a Wikipedia URL and a one-line bio, but I can do without them for now.

The main priority today was to add a ton of new celebrities since they were added about 18 months ago. A lot of water has passed under the Twitter bridge since then!

I'm pleased with the results – you can't see them all until the new guys start posting, but there should be a couple hundreds Twelebs on there, and hopefully new tweets every minute or two.

One thing I did was to use WeFollow as one of the resources (it didn't exist when Twelebs was launched). To that end, I built the following Greasemonkey script to redirect URLs from WeFollow's page about the user, straight to the Twitter page:
