The next iteration of network mapping

After completing MapMyTweeps, I started looking into next “degree” of mapping my network (friends of friends, friends’ followers etc) to look for any interesting information.

Here is my first rendering of my Twitter network.  It maps my first 100 followers, for each of my followers it maps 3 of their followers, and then one more iteration.  The size and complexity grow too quickly for me to get any useful information.  Plus it takes forever.

I think I’m going about this the wrong way.  I need a question or a hypothesis and then see if I can answer using social network mapping.
