I spend a fair amount of time on the Twitter micropublishing service, sharing links & ideas – to follow along, just click “subscribe” in the left-hand sidebar:
- #opengov list – 125 members, mostly gov’t transparency & civic engagement & non-profit news & innovation. E.g. @digiphile. Maybe could split out #opengov allies & prominent thought leaders.
- political science list – 52 members, hopefully-quality political analysis & D.C. watchdogging. E.g. ‘Up with Chris Hayes’.
- federal budget list – 15 members, mostly #realitybased economics, #finreg efforts & media-discourse-correctives. E.g. Dean Baker.
- more lists - including PPF’ers, Congress Watchers, Sunlighters, Knight Foundation-ers, and especially Wonkblog-ers, so so vital.
…happy to subscribe to suggested lists, get at me, @ppolitics.
Oh also it would be beneficial if open standards for microblogging were more user-friendly… Ping is now Seesmic is now Hootsuite Pro or something? Baffling. Maybe there’s an effortless solution to push updates from Twitter to Identi.ca, but it’s not clear from the latter’s FAQ that such exists. Still, Identi.ca is great, glad it exists – hopefully open standards will win in other social media & networking cases.
