Alright another late night, though I can't complain. 4:30AM is relatively early to sleep nowadays... Just finished doing some work and adding some features to The Grim Tweeper. Now, we store more data so that you won't see the same person twice even if you refresh (unless you cycle through all your followers), and also we keep track of your score so we can set up a leader board and make it more competitive! We shall polish some of these features tomorrow and aim for a re-launch and hope to get picked up by some more big media sites. Though that mention from Time was nice... Another feature I actually helped add last night was something I regret not thinking of earlier... after every 10 kills, a tweet window would pop-up that would essentially say something like 'I just slayed 10 followers via @thetweeper!' I checked this morning and found a lot more tweets about The Grim Tweeper and a vast majority of them were the 'just slayed 10' tweet. So it turned out that was a good way to convert users, to viral tweeters. On a side note, Ajay pointed out to me this article on people who live on no sleep from the Wall Street Journal: The Sleepless Elite Immediately, my egotistical self though OH thats me! I mean, I do really get minimal sleep and have to go to Track and Sprint Football practice. Not that easy. But upon further reading, I realized I am not necessarily among the elite, but just somewhat abnormal. Either way, good read.

So cool. It was posted under their "Must Reads" for the week. I would have to agree - for any entrepreneur/aspiring entrepreneur it is a must read. Hopefully this will drive people to the cool new project Where My Friends Be, but if not this is so awesome.... should I go celebrate now or something?
