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 | The Twinkie Awards | 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.

Social Marketing & Business Trends [INFOGRAPHIC]

Social Marketing & Business Trends [INFOGRAPHIC] | The Twinkie Awards | Scoop.it

Business-to-business social media marketing has always been a harder nut to crack than its business to consumer counterpart. A new study suggests that a refusal to embrace new social channels might be one reason why.


While more B2B marketers are using social media sites than ever before, Facebook (83 percent), Twitter (80 percent) and LinkedIn (80 percent) are far and away the platforms of choice for the majority of brands, with YouTube (61 percent) and Google+ (39 percent) rounding out the top five.

Pinterest is used by just one in four B2B marketers (26 percent), and Instagram less than one in ten (7 percent).

What a fantastic example of being brave and really (NO REALLY!) thinking about how to make content the focus of your social marketing activity. Cheers to @CocaCola . . .

You can have the coolest platforms but without curated quality content, they are nothing but literally "empty vessels making the most noise".
