Expanding the Twitter Circle

The other day I received a mention from Evion.org on Twitter. It was kind of an interesting Tweet, as it was forwarding me a Tweet, and link from another Twitter user. Most times I would probably not bother to check such a message out, but it piqued my curiosity, so I followed the link to learn more.

Essentially Evion is a service that lets you discover interesting Tweets and also be discovered by others. It works as follows:

Evion works by continuously monitoring your tweets as well as the tweets of other users and connecting, in real time, those users that share information interesting to each other. Evion uses machine learning to find tweets that may be interesting for you as well as to find people that may be interested in certain your tweets.

From what I have seen so far, it seems that Evion’s approach is pretty focused. It forwards one or two of my Tweets, in a fairly focused manner, to people who will likely have an interest in them. That is a good thing as most people don’t want to be bombarded with a bunch of irrelevant (or even relevant) messages all day long.

Not sure what Twitter thinks of this service. It would be interesting to know. Evion appears to have set up multiple Twitter accounts to send out messages.  Overall, it seems like a good service and does a nice job sending relevant Tweets.
