Listorious

Here is an idea I really like. I’m sort of addicted to human curation. It is probably why I like magazines and newspapers so much. Someone decides what is worth putting on the front page of those things, rather than only the popularity of something.

Listorious is a curated directory of Twitter’s new feature Lists. I have no idea how Listourious actually works. On their about page it says it is powered by the Twitter API. TechCrunch reports that Listorious is hand-curated yet is based on the number of followers to a list. So I’m guessing it is a mixture of people and technology. Which is exactly what it should be. I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes.

Update: It appears that Listorious can’t see Viddler’s Twitter Lists. Weird. We have two of them.
