Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Twitter Lists Reveal Interest of Followers

« Five Social Media Headlines We Didn't See this Week | Main | Customer Service on Twitter, Should You do it? »


Hey Cary:

Given that you're essentially commenting from a company that markets "doing Twitter the right way", how about showing some thought leadership in the comment?

There is no average person. However, there is your average marketing message, isn't there?

Reading your post and looking at the comments, I honestly feel that creating and managing lists in Twitter needs a whole bunch of work for the lay individual. Creating, viewing and managing lists is far beyond the average Twitterer if such a person really exists.

@Brian - that's really cool how you did that. It's amazing how many different tools have been built around Twitter already. Guessing the private @ reply is tied to an email address.

@Adam - they have also done a pretty good job at collecting background information for display on their site recently. It sounds like they do understand the digital medium.

@M. Edward - exactly. I do wonder if they have a way of mining it. They must. Think about it, all those cues in conversations. It looks like we're pretty much done with the shiny object phase of Twitter and are now dedicating more resources to figuring out how to harness its rich data.
