Technorati, is an internet search engine for searching and indexing popular blogs, has launched a new service on dedicated website – Twittorati. The idea behind Twittorati was to allow people to view the topical geist that the most influential bloggers are tweeting and blogging about.
Twittorati shows what top bloggers are tweeting about, and how these trends compare to Blogosphere trends. You’ll be able to filter tweets by topic, see the most tweeted blog posts, and compare leading Blogosphere and twitter trends.We’re asked all the time how platforms like Twitter and Facebook are impacting the Blogosphere. This is what we’re seeing: Twitter is not replacing blogs, but it has evolved as a major awareness vehicle for bloggers and people who read blogs (same goes for Facebook status updates).
This website is featuring the Technorati Top 100 Bloggers at launch, but they’re going to expand very soon to include the many more authors in the active Blogosphere. You can find the Twitter content most relevant to them, compare the day’s top blog and hash tags to see the hottest topics in both spheres, as well as see the most popular links that are being tweeted and which blogs are linking to them. You can also really dig into the information source: writer pages display each tweeter’s blogs and Twitter information and Technorati Authority.
Technorati team believes that Twitter is not replacing blogs, but it has evolved as a major awareness vehicle for bloggers and people who read blogs and there should be a way to view the topical geist.
