Twitter compiles list of “most useful” tweeters

Twitter is aiming to enhance its user experience through compilation of a list of so called “power users” – the “most useful” tweeters in a given field.

The micro blogging service conducted the research as part of wider improvements to make it easier for tweeters to find and follow others based on interests rather than just usernames.

A twitter spokesperson explained this refinement on Twitters blog: “This new approach helps you find the Twitter users that will best help you follow your interests. For example, if you’re interested in hip hop, chances are that you’d like to follow hip hop artists. Searching for “hip hop” now surfaces accounts like @common and @questlove. (Previously, we typically showed accounts that have “hip hop” in the name.)”

New categories created by Twitters engineers now include technology, humour and travel.
