Wanna see how fast you can type a tweet on Twitter? There are a lot of apps available on other social websites such as Facebook etc but if you want to test your typing speed on twitter, Fast 140 will help you out.
Fast140 a simple web app which uses OAuth method to authorize your twitter account and gives you a random tweet to type it exactly as displayed. When completed, it will show your typing speed.
Just open Fast140 and click on “Test your Typing Speed” button. Twitter will then ask your permission, click Allow and it will redirect you to the typing game.
Type the words shown exactly, if you make a mistake, you will have to correct it to move forward. As soon as you complete, it will show you your typing speed and a small data comparing your speed to other twitter users. You can also share your typing speed with your twitter friends by clicking on TWEET THIS!
I was always proud of my typing speed. When I was about to start, I thought I will be easily able to enter the Top 50 club but sadly I was only able to reach 82.1 wpm. The Top 5 users have a speed of 200+ wpm, that’s huge!
By the way, cheating with this game isn’t easy. I thought of using a Keyboard Macro Program such as AutoHotkey to automatically type the words at very high speed that would easily get me straight to the top rank. But Fast140 didn’t let me click anywhere out of the typing box, I had to start a new game whenever I did this 😛
Fast140 is an interesting web app, so do check it out and tell us your twitter speed by leaving a comment 🙂
