Treeverse – Visualise Twitter Conversations13th May 2019
Treeverse by Paul Butler has been around for a while now but it’s still one of the best ways to visualise and keep track of busy multi-threaded Twitter conversations. Originally only available in Chrome, a Firefox extension became available at the end of last year.
Once the plugin is installed, it’s simply a question of navigating to the Tweet you’re interested in and clicking on the Treeverse icon that will appear in your browser’s address bar:
Treeverse then displays the tweet, replies, and the different conversation threads that emerge from the original in a way that is much neater than the original Twitter UI. Clicking on the poster’s avatar will display the tweet thread on the right hand side, while the replies are colour-coded to indicate how quickly people responded.
Your visualisations can be exported via a shareable link (or captured with your favourite screenshot tool) to assist with an investigation or simply to help you follow complex Twitter conversations.
