A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum

A Flipped-Up Twitter Feed with Only The Good Stuff In It: Vellum | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it

From Robin Good's insight:

"Vellum is a new free web app born out of a quick experiment at the New York Times R&D labs which allows you to see all of the most relevant Twitter stories coming from the people you follow, stripped of their commentary and showing their original title, description and source.

Vellum filters out text only tweets that contain no links, eliminates duplicates and surfaces only those tweets that have already been retweeted by multiple people.


An excellent news discovery tool for content curators..."

Stephen Dale's curator insight, May 9, 2014 7:29 AM

Vellum acts as a reading list  for your Twitter feed, finding all the links that are being shared by those you follow on Twitter and displaying them each with their full titles and descriptions. 

This flips the Twitter model, treating the links as primary and the commentary as secondary (you can still see all the tweets about each link, but they are less prominent). 


Vellum puts a spotlight on content, making it easy to find what you should read next.

4 easy tools to keep up your 24-hour Twitter feed - TNW Social Media

4 easy tools to keep up your 24-hour Twitter feed - TNW Social Media | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
By definition, social media is meant to be just that, social.
The argument to automate your Twitter feed or not can be hashed and rehashed over and over, but some facts remain the same; there are people behind the mechanisms. And as human beings, whether we like it or not, we’re not meant to work 24/7, and occasionally need to sleep.

Let’s take a look at 4 minimal Twitter automation tools that can help you stay engaged, even while catching a few winks.

Twitter Uses Sulia For Curation | Peter Kafka

Twitter Uses Sulia For Curation | Peter Kafka | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
"Curation is one of the top five business opportunities for developers on the Twitter Platform, and Sulia is a great example of the innovation we’re seeing in this emerging space." says Ryan Sarver, Twitter platform head.

There's a lot of great stuff on Twitter. And there's a lot more lousy stuff. Twitter thinks curation is really important, but isn't doing it itself--yet. So it's asking outsiders for help.

Sulia’s pitch is that while Twitter is a free-for-all where anyone can say anything about anything, most people still want to pay attention to a handful of experts. The service says it can find those experts on thousands of topics, using a combination of algorithms and humans, and it assembles them into curated lists.

Social Media Influence Measurement Tools: Klout vs PeerIndex

Social Media Influence Measurement Tools: Klout vs PeerIndex | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
For the purposes of this test, I took the 50 accounts from the InfluencersinTravel.com list of independent travel influencers.
I then created a spreadsheet in Excel and imported the following data for all 50 people on the list:
- Klout Score
- PeerIndex Score
- Number of Tweets
- Number of Followers
- Number of people following
- Ratio of followers to following
- Number of Twitter lists

I then plotted the data for Klout and PeerIndex scores vs the various metrics and put a trendline on the data with a corresponding R^2 value. A value of 1.00 would be a perfect correlation...

Tweet Topic Explorer

Tweet Topic Explorer | Social Media Content Curation | Scoop.it
One problem on a daily basis is to decide for a given Twitter account whether I want to follow it or not. I consider many factors when making the decision such as language of their tweets, frequency, whether they interact on twitter with other people I admire, or if I have some personal or geographic connection with them. But the most critical factor for me is whether they tweet about things that match my interests.

New tool to help see which topics a person tweets about most often. It also shows the other twitter users that are mentioned most frequently in their tweets. I call it the Tweet Topic Explorer. I'm using the recently described Word Cluster Diagrams to show the most frequently used words in their tweets and how they are grouped together.....

The entry field at the lower left lets you explore the tweets for any twitter user.
