Update on this one – Most of these puppies have all bitten the dust.
Twitter directories can be useful, they especially come in handy if you are new to Twitter or simply want to get outside of your comfort zone and follow new people or industries. For EventProfs, it is crucial to get out there and find new people to increase your knowledge base and if you are an event marketer, they can give you places to list your event, find new attendees and more.
These twitter directories and sites are in no particular order.. you will find my favorite WeFollow about a third of the way down the list.
In my opinion, no twitter directory really rises to the level of a “must have tool”, they are not all bad, they are just not 100% perfect so they are certainly not tools that I use everyday, it is more like once a month. By this point in Twitters life-cycle, I would have thought that someone would have created a directory with a little WOW factor (anyone, anyone).
Go forth and find new people to follow!
A directory to find businesses on Twitter. The site allows you to list (or find) a business, add some tags and links.
A site that lets you search for users, businesses and things by hashtag. For example, you can put in the hashtag “#eventprofs” and watch what happens.
Probably my favorite directory, created by the founder of Digg.com, WeFollow groups users together by tags.
A user powered directory, basically, choose a category and search (or add yourself).
Takes discussions and makes them public or private without the use of Hashtags. Interesting and can be relevant. On the fence as to whether this is a directory or just an interesting application.
Local directory using zip codes
The Twitter Yellow pages with hundreds of categories.
Twitter Directory with Social Listings, Twitter Lists & Tools
Twitter directory with a category tree on the left side. Got to love a directory that has a category for incentive travel.
Interesting site that allows you to search who others follow, compare followers, how people connect via twitter.. again, interesting, check it out.
