More than a bit of fun, this nifty tool 'herds' your followers, checks out what they tweet about and then creates a word cloud of the key words.

Click on a word and then click on 'see your flock' to get to know more about your Twitter network. Great potential for contacts building and news gathering.

Tweetcloud

Another way for journalists to generate word clouds based on what they have said (your Twitter user name) or on topics. Then click on the resulting words to display a list of relevant tweets.

Of course you can then click on the name and try to connect with any interesting contacts or just join the conversations as part of the news gathering and news dissemination process.

I find this tool a great help for finding new Twitter contacts. If I see an interesting tweet and want to find out more about the person who tweeted it I can put their name in the search box and see those in his/her network who recently tweeted or retweeted.

Click on that persons box and their network expands. And on it goes. Great for newsgathering.
