We Follow Twitter Directory

Posted on 3.15.2009

There are quite a few Twitter directories on the Web. The problem with these resources is their arbitrary method of structuring the data they pull from through the Twitter API. Digg's Kevin Rose might have released what I consider to be a much better way with his new service

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. Seems a very democratic way to organize, right?

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. The message will be pre-populated with wefollow's twitter username and some directions as seen below:

WeFollow indexes pretty quickly. Website Magazine is currently ranked around #225 for blogger, and #6 for SEM - though one of the tags (SEO) that we should be ranking for has not made its way into the index yet. Overall, a great Web tool to find Twitter users to follow and promote your own agenda!
