Fun With Sparktweets

It’s no secret we love data here at Quantified Self, but we also love seeing how people interact with data. We’ve explored many of those interactions here and we’re always on the lookout for new and different ways people communicate their data and the insights therein.  A few weeks ago we wrote up a short “how to” post describing a recent phenomenon on Twitter – sparktweets. It didn’t take too long before we started seeing the Quantified Self community using these new “data words.”

We couldn’t stop thinking about sparktweets. What kind of data could you communicate in 140 characters? What would people do if it was easier to make a sparktweet? So we asked out friend Stan James to help us out and our Sparktweet Tool was born. Since then we’ve seen some great tweets roll though our feed, and we would love to see more. Need some inspiration? Here’s a few we really enjoyed:

What kind of conversation can you start with you data? Head on over to our Sparktweet Tool then make sure to add a link to your tweet in the comments or add to our conversation on the forum.
