Will you send tweets without my consent?
No, we only send tweets if you explicitly click the Tweet button on the map. We do encorage you however that you share your map, it is a great conversation starter that will give you a lot of mentions, especially if you have engaged followers.
Why do I need to authorize TweepsMap everytime I visit the site?
We use Twitter's authentication process to access your account, we don't take or store your Twitter password, hence we can only access your account through Twitter's authorization system.
Not all my followers are showing on the map?
Some twitter accounts don't have their location set, or is not set to a city, state or country hence we are unable to determine the location of these accounts.
Our tests have shown that between 10-30% of followers don't enter valid locations, the accuracy will vary depending on the number of your followers that fill their location field with a valid location.
Why is city X listed with country Y in the stat summary?
It is difficult to summarize your profile in 140 characters, and that's why we chose to include the most interesting stats about your profile. These stats may include countries, states or cities of statistical significance. Stats should not be limited to countries only, especially for accounts that have more regional influence. If you wish to see the full list, click on the List button on the left.
Do you require all these permissions listed during the authorization phase on Twitter?
No, we only require permission to read information about your profile, and Tweet your stats if you asked us to. But unfortunately, Twitter does not have a more granular permission model that allows us to only choose the permissions we need. Hence you see this big list of permissions that we don't use or need.
