Social media Advent calendar day 16: Listorious

16. Listorious

Listorious is want crowdsourcing is all about. It’s a tool which makes it easy to find people on Twitter. There are millions of Twitter lists on there, powered by, according to the company, data from the tens of thousands of list curators. Once you find the right person, you can interview them by asking questions over Listorious.

But the lists stored on there are also worth exploring. It didn’t take me more than a minute to find one which contained a list of people from Birmingham.

So as tool for finding people around a specific subject – great for finding a ‘boffin’ – it’s great, while the lists are simple to explore too. And, once you’ve found a list, you’re only one click away from following them too.
