Following the people of the NYT and Twitter

Saturday, May 16, 2009 by Dave Winer.

A picture named twitterbird.gifI read a really interesting article the other day about the 47 people at Twitter, Inc and thought it would make an interesting aggregate. So I used the same code I had to follow the top-100 most followed people and did one for the 47 people of Twitter. Since it starts on a weekend, most people are doing home and family things, or not tweeting at all. It'll be interesting to see how it picks up on Monday. Permalink to this paragraph

The New York Times seems to operate at all hours. We aggregate the tweets of the people of the Times -- what they're talking about; as opposed to the stories they've written. Permalink to this paragraph

Both of the new feeds are interesting, as is the original: Permalink to this paragraph

I'm open to doing others if people have ideas. Permalink to this paragraph
