Getting Twitter and Facebook Analytics

So A few weeks back someone tip me on to Thinkup,, An PHP app that lets you get some basic Analytics from your twitter and facebook followers. Also as an upside it provides you a backup of your twitter and facebook feed as it stores it in a local MySQL database. You can view sample of my twitter data here: Not to useful for me as I am not a crazy twitter but I can see some interesting potential in it.

Also right now I am running it on a EC2 server from Amazon using their new Free Tier,, so it gives me a chance to test out a few things with that. If you plan to do the same I suggest you check out my forum post about an mysql issue that wil cause performance issue and the fix: I suggest you give it a spin if you have some free webspace.
