It’s no longer a matter of answering the micro riddle, “to tweet or not to tweet.” Twitter helps you simply Tweet everything that moves you. While this capability has existed through third-party services over the years, Twitter is rolling out a dedicated function to harness the power of the “interest graphs” that you weave.
Not only can you share links with those who follow you, Twitter is extending its “Suggestions for You” feature to assist in the curation of your social nicheworks. After a link is shared, relevant individuals who share your affinity for topics and themes will appear. This allows you to expand your social graph and slowly shape it into a series of interest-related graphs or contextual nicheworks.
For content publishers, from casual bloggers to influencers to the media elite, Twitter only requires the installation of a few lines of code to set the stage for broader distribution within an ecosystyem where the appetite for “what’s happening” is insatiable.
Here, I’ve used the TweetMeme to provide sharing functionality. TweetMeme is partnering with Twitter to ensure that this functionality run seamlessly. The company is also expanding its services to fine tune the social web and shape the future of content curation.
