Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context"

Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context" | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it
Robin Good: Twylah is a web service which "auto-curates" your Twitter stream by generating a full web site which auto-organizes and visualizes your tweeted content around a set of specific topics.

 

Here is a real-world example of my own tweet-stream "auto-curated" by Twilah: http://www.twylah.com/robingood 

Impressive. Key Features:

 

- Harnesses the SEO power of all your tweets by grouping them into relevant topics

 

- Creates a more engaging space for your followers and fans 

 

- Provides a high-value content platform on auto-pilot for any author

 

- Facilitates subscriptions to your Twitter channel

 

- Integrates a PowerTweet function which not only allows to Tweet from any web page, but it "auto-creates" a  thematic web page just-in-time around your very tweet topic.

 

(Now that Twylah has kicked out a few bugs that were preventing Scoop.it based curators like me to extract the best from this new service, I am very impressed by what I see.)


This is one of the best examples of how much MORE value can be extracted by "curating", organizing and "presenting" appropriately what IS ALREADY out there. 

 

Check some of Twylah "featured" pages here: http://www.twylah.com/featured 

 

If you want to drive engagement beyond the single tweet, and show others what you cover and are all about, at-a-glance, I am hard-pressed in finding something better than Twylah.


If you use Twitter and you share lots of valuable news across different topics, I strongly suggest you request an invite to Twylah right now: http://www.twylah.com/

Wow Robin - really cool and I appreciate you exposing twylah to me! I've already applied. Should be a great way to engage people. Are you somehow now sending people to twylah instead of your twitter home page?
Robin Good's comment, January 14, 2012 8:48 AM
Hey Mitch, first my compliments to your great channel. Great stuff!

Yeah, Twylah looks good. I'm glad you have applied, with your content it is going to be great as well.

If you tweet with the Twylah "Power Tweet" function your readers are automatically taken to your Twylah property, but otherwise yes, I am going to see what are all of the best ways to take them there.
planetMitch's comment, January 14, 2012 9:16 AM
Thanks Robin, I'm impressed by your channel as well, your success is one of the main reasons why I've ended up loving scoop.it and am now a 'business' user and have integrated it into my own domain now.

I've been doing 'curation' with my blog for 3 years, but now scoop.it has helped me solve a problem that I haven't been able to deal with - and that is a way to share news that doesn't 'qualify' for me to spend time writing a full blog post about.

The 'power tweet' is a brilliant idea and one I can see using a lot - maybe too much.

I might like to see twylah expand to do one thing scoop does well - and that's to let me post the power tweet to facebook, g+ etc.

Thanks again for exposing me to so many great ideas!

Best Thinkers Series: Is Curation the New Journalism?

If you're serious about content curation or just want to know more about it, you shouldn't miss this.......

 

An exclusive, live webinar from Social Media Today

 

October 4th at 12pm EST / 9am PST

 

Where journalists used to be the trusted agents for reporting on the ground and fact-checking stories before publication, every Web user is now a potential journalist.

 

And as the deluge of user-generated information gathers strength, finding out what's important to people in their private and working lives becomes more and more challenging. How to sort between truth, half truth and falsehood?

 

Technical filtering can't (yet) match human capacity to discriminate between useful content and garbage. This is the increasingly vital role of the online curator. The discussion will examine to what extent curation is becoming integral to journalism, and whether bloggers and tweeters can adequately play the the reporting role of journalists.

 

We'll cover the following questions, as well as your own:

 

What's the difference between curation and journalism? How does factchecking work in the blogosphere? What are emerging best practices for online curators?

 

Can the hive mind of the Internet match the formal editorial structure of a traditional news organization when it comes to producing accurate reporting and analysis of current events?

 

Maggie Fox will host the webinar, her wonderful guests are Steve Rosenbaum and Tom Foremeski. (Bios on the article)

Algorithms Coupled with Human Curation Can Generate a Great User Experience: The Twitter #NASCAR Experiment

Algorithms Coupled with Human Curation Can Generate a Great User Experience: The Twitter #NASCAR Experiment | Curaduria de contenidos y Preservacion digital | Scoop.it

Robin Good: As you have probably already read somewhere else, this last weekend, Twitter launched a first-of-a-kind type of page.

 

The page, which you can see here: https://twitter.com/hashtag/nascar revolves around the last NASCAR car racing event, that took place last Sunday and it apparently aggregates interesting tweets and comments from a group of passionate NASCAR fans.

The interesting thing is that this page is in fact not an automatically aggregated page of tweets having a specific hashtag. There have been plenty of tweets in here with no hashtag at all, or not even mentioning explicitly NASCAR.

 

This is a human-curated page of tweets, selected from a curated list of relevant people for this topic.

 

This is the real news.

 

GigaOm writes about it: "The NASCAR page may not seem like anything to be concerned about, since it appears to be just a typical grouping of tweets collected by hashtag.

 

But there is editorial control behind it as well as algorithms, with an editor choosing which messages — including photos, videos and commentary from NASCAR insiders — were highlighted during the event, and which streamed by unacknowledged."

 

By mixing and matching technology-powered identification of relevant people and tweets for a specific topic, with an active layer of human curation allows Twitter to generate a page that's filled with value.

 

Here's what Twitter itself wrote on his blog before launching it: "...throughout the weekend – but especially during the race – a combination of algorithms and curation will surface the most interesting Tweets to bring you closer to all of the action happening around the track, from the garage to the victory lane."

 

And while this is only a first experiment from Twitter, I would bet that it will not be the last.

The value provided by adding a human curation layer, both to the selection of the sources as well as to the selection of the actual tweets, is huge.

What's your take?
