The many moods of @pauloCanning



Twitter has started its mass roll out of lists and I just created my first of public sector people (and hangers on) I follow.

I laughed out loud when I clicked through to see I'd been already added onto 28 existing lists - and what those list titles are. According to some of my followers, I am alternately:
  • international
  • technology
  • gov-and-local-gov 
  • egov 
  • publicsector 
  • accessibility 
  • tech 
  • militant-gays 
  • gov2010 
  • techpolitics 
  • localgoveratti 
  • social-networkers 
  • techies 
  • work 
  • ukgov20 
  • localgovgeeks 
  • skeptics 
  • localgovweb 
  • socialmedia 
  • publicsector 
  • localgov-ish 
  • epicvisionaries 
  • politics 
  • media 
  • accessibility 
  • public-sector 
  • it 
  • gov-uk
Keep 'em guessing is obviously a winning stratagem :]

Lists are really useful for finding others around a specific topic. listorious.com is a good place to find ones already created and there's ones for top egovernment people, government bodies etc.

The one I've created for UK public sector workers and contractors I grew through following links to other's lists in this area. Listorious has several others created around the 'government' theme.

I haven't analysed this but I've noticed that from following my list others have added people found there to their following and hence made connections which they might not otherwise have made.
