I was wondering who among my friends was the biggest tweeter, then I got to wondering how I could learn that prettily.


Also, the most tweets Twitter will cough up at a time is 200 without, er, doing something I don’t know how to do.

Sample chart above is using randomized names because it seemed polite and non-accusatory to do it that way, considering one of those people needs to lay off the caffeine. (I kid, “coscet,” I kid. Much love.)

Update: Thanks to Ed in the comments, who noted I was citing the wrong gem for the Google Charts action.
