WeFollow: A User Powered Twitter Directory
We Follow is a new user powered Twitter directory. The site was launched by Digg founder Kevin Rose
The WeFollow site lists the top Twitter members in various popular categories (e.g. Celebrity, Blogger, Tech, Music, Social Media, etc.), displaying the Twitterers in order of the number of followers they have.
It’s quick and simple to add a Twitter account into the WeFollow index : simply select “Add Yourself to WeFollow” on the We Follow homepage and you’ll be redirected to your Twitter account. You’ll then be asked to send message to @wefollow with up to three hash tags that describe or define you as a Twitterer.
Excamples of some the popular categories being used include: blogs, entertainment, health, science, socialmedia, food, books, news, politics, movies, fashion, shopping, gadgets, gadgets, pets, and business.
WeFollow is a useful alternative to sites like Twitterholic that show only the most popular Twitter users overall. Websites like these have become dominated by celebrity twitterers as of late.
I have personally started to follow the following Twitterers:
1) Britney Spears! ” Yes! This is the real Britney Spears! We’ve got updates from her team, her website and yes, even Britney herself!” 😀
2) Evan Williams, CEO of Twitter (Dude, if Google acquired Twitter, would there be an improvement in Twitter Search? )
3) Coldplay- my favourite band who is considering taking a break from the music industry, so their fans don’t grow sick of their music.
4) Kevin Rose – Founder of social media site digg.com. Random ideas, entrepreneur, climber of rocks, video blogger, & tea drinker.
5) Tim O’Reilly – Founder and CEO, O’Reilly Media. Watching the alpha geeks, sharing their stories, helping the future unfold.
6) Dave Morin – The Facebook Guy
7) Twitter Tips – Twitter tips, tools, news & status from @SarahJL (radio DJ, dance teacher) & @QuantumGood (resident geek)
8) William Shatner – A nice surprise to see one of my favourite actors (Denny Crane in TV Show Boston Legal) on Twitter!
9) twt.fm – Tweeting Music, ahh something very interesting! My first Music Tweet : http://twt.fm/41013
10) Guy Kawasaki – RSSurai with Annie Colbert, Gina Ruiz, and Bill Meade
11) LFC TV – eihhh I would had preferred Man U TV though!
12) Gary Vaynerchuk – Internet Marketer
13) Bill Crosby – Wickedly Smart Marketer
14) Daniel Brusilovsky – Young entrepreneur
15) startupstudent – Entrepreneurial quotes in the AM and blogging about entrepreneurship all time
Overall, weFollow is a great Web tool to find Twitter users to follow and promote your own agenda!
