Do you source on Twitter? Do you ever wish you had a way to see more data about Twitter users when viewing their profiles? This may be your answer. Leaf is a Chrome addon that lets you see Twitter metrics for any Twitter user. You will see Twitter activity, hashtags, influencers, mentions and more.

Once installed, the leaf button sits on the upper right hand of the screen when viewing a Twitter profile. To see statistics, simply click on the leaf.
