Fount out yesterday that Digg founder, Kevin Rose has created the first user powered Twitter directory called WeFollow. What WeFollow does is that it tracks the top Twitter users based on the number of followers and lists them under different categories
The front page of WeFollow features the popular tags or categories: celebrity, politics, actor, tech, music and news. You can view and check out other tags/categories using the Popular Tags section on the right side.
You can also view the Top 100 Tweeters on the WeFollow Twitter Directory.
To add your blog to the WeFollow Twitter Directory, all you need to do is send a tweet using the following format:
@wefollow #yourtag #yourtag #yourtag
As an example, I’ll use the tweet and tags I used for JaypeeOnline:
@wefollow #blogging #wordpress #reviews
Or if you’re already logged in to Twitter, just visit WeFollow.com and click on this button:
It will automatically create a tweet with the suggested format. All you need to do is replace the tags with your own tags or tags that you’d like your blog to be listed under. Maximum of 3 tags so you need to choose your tags wisely.
Its as easy as that. Once WeFollow receives your tweet, your blog will automatically be added to the directory. To check if your blog has alread been added, just do a search for one of the tags/category you used for your blog. Remember the list is based on the number of Twitter followers so users who have the most followers will be on top of the list.
I like WeFollow! It provides Twitter users like me a simple and easy way to find and track other Twitter users who belong to a specific niche/category. Its also a good way of finding other tweeters who belong to your niche to expand your network.
For those of you who are on Twitter, have you already heard or joined WeFollow? What tags/categories did you list your blog under?
