A blog (a truncation of the expression web log) is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web and consisting of discrete entries ("posts") typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the most recent post appears first). Until 2009 blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject. More recently "multi-author blogs" (MABs) have developed, with posts written by large numbers of authors and professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging" systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into societal newstreams. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

History Creation and initial reaction Twitter's origins lie in a "daylong brainstorming session" held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo. Dorsey, then an undergraduate student at New York University, introduced the idea of an individual using an SMS service to communicate with a small group. The original project code name for the service was twttr, an idea that Williams later ascribed to Noah Glass, inspired by Flickr and the five-character length of American SMS short codes. The developers initially considered "10958" as a short code, but later changed it to "40404" for "ease of use and memorability
A mere 20,000 Twitter users steal almost half of the spotlight on Twitter, which now ropes in a billion tweets every week. That means only 0.05% of the social network’s user base attracts attention, according to a new Yahoo Research study titled, “Who Says What to Whom on Twitter.” Of the 260 million tweets with URLs that the study’s authors analyzed, nearly 50% of the tweets consumed were created by what they called “elite” users who fall into four categories: media, celebrities, organizations and bloggers. “Ordinary” users encompass everyone else. Like findings in previous studies, the researchers for this one conclude Twitter resembles an information-sharing hub rather than a social network, with the top generators garnering huge follower tallies but not following their content consumers in return. Unlike previous studies though, this one delves deeper into the production and flow of tweets. 50% of Tweets Consumed Come From Only 0.05% of Twitter Users [STUDY]
Most credible tweets come from people we trust, follow Twitter users place the most faith in items retweeted by someone they trust, according to recent research, a finding that should make journalists and other influencers cautious about passing along suspect information. “A retweet from someone you trust” is the biggest single factor in lending credibility to information on Twitter, according to a scientific study by researchers from Microsoft and Carnegie Mellon University. The researchers set out to discover what exactly a Twitter user weighs when she evaluates information discovered through her timeline or a Twitter search. They ranked which factors lend the most credibility to a tweet, as well as which ones make them less credible. Here are the most credible factors, followed by the average credibility impact score (a 1-5 rating of how much credibility the factor creates, 5 being the highest).

Obsessed with the idea that Google doesn’t have the one right answer, in late 2008 Micah Baldwin joined Lijit Networks—his sixth startup—which believes each blogger has a right answer. What if you didn't know who to follow on Twitter? Would you randomly start following people? Would you follow people you see mentioned by those you already follow? Most likely you would ask your friends for recommendations since you can trust that your friends will suggest people who are worth following. Which is exactly how FollowFriday began. #FollowFriday: The Anatomy of a Twitter Trend

How to Predict the Spread of News on Twitter Twitter has revolutionised the way millions of people receive news and the type of news they get. So it’s no surprise that there is huge interest in predicting what kind of stories are likely to spread furthest and fastest. One way to make this kind of prediction is to study how a story spreads soon after it is released into the wild. Various groups have shown that this early popularity can be a good predictor of a story’s later spread. A couple of years ago, Bernardo Huberman and pals at HP’s Social Computing Lab in Palo Alto used this approach to predict the eventual box office revenues based on the rate of tweets about a film soon after it was released.

Top Pharma Tweeters: Tracking Pharma’s Use of Twitter in Real-Time | ePharma Rx About a year ago, I published a chart that looked like the one to the right in a post titled "Pharma Finds its Voice on Twitter." This functional but not-so-pretty graphic featured known pharma companies actively tweeting, their Twitter handle, the date they joined, and the number of following, followers, and updates. The pharma community response was positive, and everyone seemed to appreciate having a central resource for this type of info. The problem was, of course, that as soon as we compiled the data, it was outdated.
