Summary & Installation:
Quickly review many Twitter user's bio and most recent Tweet at a glance. (see screenshot below)
Runs on your or anyone's following and followers page. Uses AJAX request to read and parse each user's profile page, then displays the bio, web link text, follower and following count, and most recent Tweet next to each user id & photo on your list of followers and friends. A great way to discover & decide on new folks you might want to follow.
