When it comes to Twitter, people get a little excited around these parts. In fact, we like to think of Portland as one of the most Twittery towns around. So when TweetMeme released a new “follow me” button that provides some interesting details about you and your Twitter account, it was no surprise that Portlanders—not to mention other folks around the Web—were quick to start banging on it.
What might surprise you, however, is that one local Twitter-focused company is baked right into the goodness that is the new TweetMeme Follow button—and that company is Portland-based Twitalyzer. Read More
[HTML2]You may remember Twitalyzer from the bit of hubbub it caused last year, when it was used to select the top 100 Twitter users in Portland.

And if you’re on the list? You get a free beer. Read More
[HTML3]Ah, Twitter. If there’s one thing I know about Twitter and Portland it’s this: Portland loves Twitter. It’s helped our community band together, it’s helped us monitor the weather, and it’s helped inspire new products—like TwitterLocal and Twitalyzer. Heck, we even have Rael Dornfest, the guy engineering our Twitter user experience, here in town.
Twitter and Portland were made for each other.
But when I start thinking about Portland and Twitter there it always leads to questions. Who else in Portland is using Twitter? Who am I missing? Who are the most active and influential people in Portland on Twitter?
Leave it to Twitalyzer, the Portland-based Twitter analysis tool, to answer that question. Read More
