Top 10 Twittering Genealogists according to WeFollow

Tuesday, 17 Mar 2009 | by Mark Tucker

Today I added myself to WeFollow with the tags #genealogy, #technology, and #innovation.

WeFollow allows Twitter users to specify 3 tags that describe them best.  It then ranks the most popular Twitter users for each tag based on the number of Twitter followers.

I was surprised to find myself in the top 10 for #genealogy.

So in case it doesn’t last long, I took a screen capture:

WeFollow Top Genealogy Twitter


  1. Don’t know how they decided that one, I know heaps of twitterers with genealogy amongst their interests that have way more followers than these 10

  2. I know other genealogists on twitter that should be on this list too.

    These twittering genealogists need to add themselves to WeFollow with one of their tags as #genealogy.

  3. Hey instead of complaining about who all should be on this list, why not tell this gentleman CONGRATULATIONS!?

  4. Do you have to tweet @wefollow again to get your stats updated? I see you’re listed at 513 followers, but have quite a few more than that.

  5. What was their criteria? It looks like the number of followers, but was there something else, like number of tweets?

  6. I tweeted @wefollow a second time to add a 3rd topic, and it picked up the additional topic, but did not refresh my followers or description. Perhaps they’re still developing a refresh option.

  7. Don’t be so impatient to slide down. This thing is new. Allow it some time.
    It will happen. Just wait for, FamilyLink, etc to join ;-)
