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. Session co-organized by the McCombs School of Business and the Center for Research in Electronic Commerce (CREC).
