This includes posting from it and new users signing up to Twitter. Twitter isn’t commenting, and Pheed’s CEO O.D.

Via Martin (Marty) Smith, Robin Good
Therese Torris's insight:

TT: agree that a twitter link from scoop.it creates an annoying additional step for viewers interested in the content. But driving traffic to the aggregating platform (be it scoop.it, pulse or else) and to the curator is OK as long as it is clear where the link goes. The link should not be hidden behind a bitly  and include @scoopit.
What annoys me however is that scoop.it links do NOT credit the original souce. For that reason I almost always manually add its twitter handle (lots of work). ATTRIBUTION to the original source is key to curation, in my opinion.

For example I'm going to tweet this and add the handle of the author : Bryan Vartabedian @Doctor_V

Right on Marty! I'm re-scooping this as a way to help that learning along about how to really use Scoop.it well and leverage it.
Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 22, 2014 2:25 PM

FYI Folks -- I trust that the reviews I write about the articles I curate help people along in their business storytelling journey. I know that there are many curators out there who do not add reviews/comments to the articles they highlight. 


As a result, Scoop.it and other curation sites are getting a backlash because audience members are tired of getting a link to an article that brings them to Scoop.it, and then requires another click to get to the article. Now I know that is annoying. And there is nothing of value offered between clicks.


Marty's response to the original blog post is right on. Read it along with all the other comments. Truly illuminating.


Other than a rant for me, what's the value of this post to you and business storytelling?


Namely this -- no matter what medium you use -- blogging, curating, digital storytelling -- make sure you are actually adding value for your audience. Expand their knowledge, give them tools, show them how, and offer your excellent insights. The stories you share have to connect to your audience in these ways. Anything else is a waste.


All of these posts and reviews add up to telling your story in a big picture way. So thanks Marty for addressing this issue, and reminding us about principles for quality curation. I've learned a lot from both you and Robin!

I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

Robin Good's curator insight, January 10, 2013 1:45 PM


Something quite revolutionary happened the other day, when Twitter official announced with this article, that it had introduced a "human computation engine" to more effectively identify topics and context belonging to their trending news themes and to what people search on Twitter.


To achieve this, Twitter has hired a small custom team of crowdsourced workers from Amazon / Mechanical Turk, and it feeds them in real-time with trending issues and topic they have to analyze on the basis of a specific set of questions. Here is a sample:


"What category does the query belong to? For example, [Stanford] may typically be an education-related query, but perhaps there's a football game between Stanford and Berkeley at the moment, in which case the current search intent would be sports.


- Does the query refer to a person? If so, who? And, what is their Twitter handle if they have one? For example, the query [Happy Birthday Harry] may be trending, but it's hard to know beforehand which of the numerous celebrities named Harry it's referring to.


Is it One Direction's Harry Styles, in which case the searcher is likely to be interested in teen pop? Harry Potter, in which case the searcher is likely to be interested in fantasy novels? Or someone else entirely?"


The article provides wonderful insight into how such a challenging task is carried out, and what measures have been taken to ensure highest quality results.


Check also what ReadWrite writes about it: http://readwrite.com/2013/01/08/watch-out-cnn-new-twitter-search-capabilities-will-rule-breaking-news


Pretty revolutionary. Insightful. Informative. 9/10

...At least so far. But the catch is that Twitter can change its mind at any time. Users and journalists may have come to think of Twitter as a kind of public utility, but in fact it’s a private organization that can pretty much dictate how its service gets used.

This underscores the risk involved in investing too heavily in any one social media tool or system....
