Find the True Twitter Influencers in Any Niche or Location with Twtrland

Find the True Twitter Influencers in Any Niche or Location with Twtrland | Content Curation World |
A simple way to browse the social web
Robin Good's insight:

If you are looking for an effective tool to identify Twitter influencers in specific niches and regions of the world, here is a super handy new tool.

Twtrland is a new web app which allows you to easily find key influencers on many niche topics including the ability to identify those influencers based in specific geographic regions.

Try searching for a specific Twitter user by name and last name and check out the thorough profile that Twtrland builds for you. Very useful. Then try a city and drill down to find who are the influencers by using the filters on the left side. Finally try to search for one of the 60K skills already covered (too bad "Content Curation" isn't there yet).

From the official site: "Twtrland. It allows you to search Twitter by names, location and skills and surfaces a wide variety of insights, stats and useful pointers. It’s especially useful if you’re researching specialists (by country/location) as well as checking someone out (beyond the usual LinkedIn search)."

Free version available.

The PRO version allows for more search results, filters, the ability to collect profiles into separate folders, to export them, and to analyze fully the stats of any brand, keyword or user for $19.99.

My comment: Hard to beat. Great research tool allows you to rapidly find relevant influencers in a growing number of verticals. Easy to use. Very useful.

Curators Are The True Influencers

Curators Are The True Influencers | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

Here's an inspiring short article by Elia Morling on the role of curators in storytelling.

Elia reports of a discussion he has had with netnographer Olga Kravets, in which she suggested that: "...curators serve their tribe like dumpster divers.

They dive into containers to rummage through heaps of garbage to find useful stuff that can be re-purposed. When they are done they bring forth their scavenged gifts to their tribe."

But here, is the most compelling part as Elia really seems to have distilled and illustrated here the three key and most valuable traits of a modern content curator:

a) Curators represent a new type of tribal leadership that operates bottom-up and peer to peer.

b) As a member of a tribe, curators will always be more native and relevant than any outsiders will ever be.

c) Within a tribe they are not only appreciated for leveraging their insider skills, but for sustaining and developing their culture."

Definitely worth reading. Inspiring. 8/10

Elias Morling estime que les curateurs sont comme les "dumpster divers", ces militants qui fouillent les poubelles.  Et ils les appelle les "vrais influenceurs" car :


1. Les curateurs représentent un nouveau type de leadership tribal bottom up et peer-to-peer.


2. En tant que membres d'une tribu, les curateurs seront toujours plus "natives" que n'importe qui parlant de l'extérieur.


3. Au sein de la tribu, ils sont appréciés non seulement pour leurs compétences, mais aussi parce qu'ils entretiennent et développent leur propre culture.

Excellent article and video. Looking at the wonderful world of the internet and curation. The idea of curation of online content has become more and more inportant with the exponential growth of content on the world wide web. Being able to organise and manage all of the content is important.


Curation is about making good choices about what you share and putting it into a context for themselves and others. Being enthusiastic and thoughtful about what you choose is a way of showing what you are finding and sharing is signficant and worthwhile. 


Finding the most interesting and valuable things and sharing that is the key. What you want and what you are interested in is important but you also need to consider your audience.
