Twellow – Twitter yellow pages

by

Twellow is a great new search tool and directory for discovering Twitter users that could fundamentally change the way people use the microblogging service. Launched by the same people behind the tech news site WebProNews, Twellow has indexed more than 300,000 users and sorted them into categories like programming, marketing, graphic design, and dozens of others to help you find users who list those characteristics in their Twitter biographies. There are also sub-categories. RSS feeds are also offered for each category and sub-category. . . .

Twellow  is a great new search tool and directory for discovering Twitter users that could fundamentally change the way people use the microblogging service.

Launched by the same people behind the tech news site WebProNews, Twellow has indexed more than 300,000 users and sorted them into categories like programming, marketing, graphic design, and dozens of others to help you find users who list those characteristics in their Twitter biographies. There are also sub-categories.  RSS feeds are also offered for each category and sub-category.

Beyond directory browsing, you can enter in specific search terms to find people listing certain interests. By default, search results are sorted by number of followers, but you can also filter them by most recent activity. You can further drill down by searching within a specific category.

So far, Twitter experience has mostly revolved around adding friends and interesting people who come across on blogs, or simply re-following those that follow. Twellow allows you to be proactive about finding new and interesting people to follow, and does a great job of presenting the results.

Twellow has built a compelling people search and social networking front-end – both features Twitter may have been better served to build on their own.

Meanwhile, if you don’t yet find yourself in the Twellow directory, you can add yourself by going here. You may also want to re-think what you list in your Twitter bio to make it easier for people to find you.
