A taxonomy of tweets

January 11th, 2010

Here’s a taxonomy of tweets from an experiment at SemanticHacker Blog:

  • User’s current status
  • Private conversations
  • Links to web content
    • links to blog and news articles
    • links to images and videos
    • other links
  • Politics, sports, current events
  • Product recommendations/complaints
  • Advertising  “posted from a company’s twitter account”
  • Spam
  • Other messages “that don’t quite fit under any of the above categories. Fan messages to celebrities, shoutouts to other users, web-based polls and quizzes, and so on.”
