Language most spoken on Twitter

I got curious so here's some stats I've been gathering.

Twitts are culled from the public timeline every minute and language (see code definitions) is detected by Google.

The most spoken language will always have a ceiling value of 100, so a language with a value of 20 is 5 times less common than the most spoken.

Graph is updated every 30 minutes with the stats for the current day.

Web apps user experience: not exactly improving

Take a quick look at this. First impression: "oh yes, these admin interfaces look really sleek". Second thought: each of them presents different UI concepts for doing the same tasks, UI elements (menu bars, status bars, sliders, buttons) are inconsistent across (and sometimes inside) them etc etc.

Poor users...

I've removed daily del.icio.us posts from the blog RSS feed

Why? Well, I guess they may be too annoying for people only interested on the other lengthier ramblings which I occasionally write here on this blog.

So from now on if you're interested on my del.icio.us usage habits, try subscribing to http://feeds.delicious.com/v2/rss/nieder1 or even better: subscribe to my FriendFeed at http://friendfeed.com/rncabral?format=atom which includes more online activity (twitter, amazon, last.fm etc etc)
