Twitter allows you to pick lists of people to follow that have been created by other people. There may be times when you don’t to follow every single person on that list or you want to follow the entire list of them directly rather than through a list. The solution: TweepML is a simple format to make it easy for people to share a list of Twitter users “Tweeps”.
If you click here you can look for lists. I can type in a word like “jobs” and it will show lists and tell how many users are on that list. If I should pick a list, it will pull up the entire list. I can look at who is listed and follow the ones I want easily by keeping the automatic X that is next to their name or removing it from the ones that I do not want to follow. You can clear all of the X’s and pick one at a time or keep all of the X’s and remove one at a time.
You can add TweepML to your website to make it easy for people to follow everyone on it with a single click.
If you want to see what lists are popular, the main page contains a list of the most popular lists. You can create your own list and share it with the world by clicking here.
When original owner of the site, Marcelo Carbucci, put TweepML up for sale earlier this year, I wondered what the impact would be. Since then, I have noticed a lot more activity with people finding me through their site. I am curious to see how this site will grow under new management.
