Hot on Twitter

Every day — every hour of every day — Twitter is home to some great discussions about the future of news. If you follow the right people, it can be a perfect way to keep up with all the debates around new business models, online journalism, social media, and everything else we talk about here at the Lab.

Hot on Twitter is an automated tool to find the 10 most talked-about links on Twitter among future-of-news nerds like us.

The list is updated every hour on the hour, and it’s all done algorithmically — no humans involved. The number-crunching is all done by Hourly Press, a terrific project by Steve Farrell and Lyn Headley. You can see the expanded version of this page — with breakdowns on who’s tweeting what and all sorts of metadata — over here.

The Nieman Journalism Lab is a collaborative attempt to figure out how quality journalism can survive and thrive in the Internet age.
