Site Lists Twitterers

A new website listing users of Twitter has been described as a “godsend” for journalists.

Twellow.com lists hundreds of thousands of Twitterers and divides them into categories so people can browse the areas they’re interested in.

It also has a search function which enables visitors to search by name for any users of the microblogging platform.

And according to academic and blogger Paul Bradshaw, it’s these combined services that make Twellow a “godsend for specialist journalists”.

However, Bradshaw also pointed out some of the new site’s weaknesses - including the absence of any options to search by location.

More details on this can be found at the Online Journalism Blog.
