UPDATE: We recently launched TrendSpottr on HootSuite. Give it a try by heading to HootSuite’s App Directory and installing the TrendSpottr app. We also put together this quick overview video with tips and tricks for viral content discovery. Hope you enjoy!
We’ve added a cool new feature to the TrendSpottr site today that we think you’ll really like. You can now use Twitter list URLs in our search bar to automatically generate trending results from a curated list of Twitter users.
For example, if you’re interested in Tech, you can copy and paste Robert Scoble’s “most influential in tech” Twitter list (https://twitter.com/#!/Scobleizer/most-influential-in-tech) into the TrendSpottr search bar and see what’s trending among the top technorati. You can view all of Scoble’s Twitter lists here.
If you’re more in the mood for Music, you can use the Twitter list of the top music bloggers as curated by the music aggregator Elbo.ws (https://twitter.com/#!/elbows/music-blogs).
Using Twitter list URLs in TrendSpottr is a great way to increase the relevance of trending results by focusing on a high quality and curated list of users. There are several sites that offer a directory of Twitter lists that you can peruse, including: Listorious and Listatlas.
