From the web page sharing about TweetPsych:

TweetPsych uses the LIWC and RID to build a psychological profile of a person based on the content of their Tweets. It compares the content of a user’s Tweets to a baseline reading I’ve built by analyzing an ever-expanding group of over 1.5 million random Tweets, then highlighting areas where the user stands out.

The service analyzes your last 1000 Tweets; as such, it works best on users who have posted more than 1000 updates. It is also better suited for running analyses on accounts that are operated by a single user and use Twitter in a conversational manner, rather than simply a content distribution platform. It takes a few moments to analyze an account the first time, but subsequent views of a profile will load faster.

Dan Zarrella (creator of TweetPsych) uses this to analyze your Cognitive Content and your Primordial, Conceptual, and Emotional Content. Does this analysis mean anything? Well, who knows.

By way of explanation, Dan shares:

[The second measure….] primordial (the unconscious way you think, like in dreams), conceptual (logical and rational though) and emotional…[the first measure…] measures the cognitive and emotional properties of a person based on the words they use.

Fun to try out and see what happens. I find it difficult to interpret and I’m not sure if this is “good” or “bad;” however, it’s interesting to see what it involves.

Try out TweetPsych for yourself….
