Broadcasting Value: How Twitter Users Communicate Relevance

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

Twitter is redefining the way information is reported, spread, interacted with, and absorbed. Each individual on Twitter can fluidly act as a primary source, a filter, an information catalyst, and a consumer. Taken collectively, the information preferences expressed by Twitter users provide a valuable signal indicating the relevance of information and information sources across Twitter and the web as a whole. In this talk we consider the information ecosystem of Twitter through the lenses of lists, top tweets, and trending topics, exploring the emergence and value of transparently communicated information preferences.
