Twitter’s “Followed By” And “You Both Follow” More Useful Than “Mutual Friends”


On Friday Twitter launched a mass roll out of the "Followed By" and "You Both Follow" features, which we previously covered last month (It seems as though Tlists, a feature which allows users to see what Twitter lists you are on, have yet to hit critical mass). While Facebook and Foursquare have had "friends in common" social graph features for awhile, it's a little more difficult to directly convert these concepts to Twitter because the concept of "friend" v.s "follower"/"followed" is hard to parse. After playing with the features for a couple of days, they have proven to be incredibly useful, as or if not more useful (and definitely more grammatically correct) than “Who To Follow, and especially more useful than Facebook’s "Mutual Friends," despite the fact that Twitter allows for one-way relationships whereas Facebook is by design two-way, where both parties have to agree on the relationship to connect.

Twitter Is Down. Again. What The Hell Do I Do?


It's funny -- I know Twitter is down. I know it has been down for about an hour now. And yet, I can't stop visiting the site to see if just maybe it's back up. And I'm hardly alone. I'm sitting here at the Techonomy conference in Lake Tahoe, CA and Twitter's current downtime seems to be what a huge number of people are talking about. And they're talking about it in person, because they can't on Twitter.
