Twitter detective allows the site’s user to request tweet information of a twitter profile. By utilizing the twitter API, the javascript is able to parse the JSON response for metadata about the tweets. It then provides the user with some insights about the twitter profile by making inferences from the metadata. This includes average location, what type of twitter client is used, and the hourly distribution of tweets per day.
