Did You Know I’m a Content Curator on Twitter?

content curator

A content curator is a person who collects useful information on a topic and distributes them via a stream.  One of my favorite social media platforms is twitter.  Twitter is known for breaking news and real time discussion.  I use twitter to curate lists on topics that interest me.  My favorite lists are sorted by location.  For example if you read my Florida twitter list stream you will find anything and everything related to Florida.  Not just travel but also news, weather, coupons, etc.  I check this stream first thing in the morning to find out what’s going on locally.  The best part is the immediacy.  Content is up to date and I know I’m getting the latest news.

If you are traveling to Florida I highly recommend you follow by subscribing to the list.

By becoming a content curator I’ve developed an expertise to sort content in a way that is digestible.  There is so much information out there sometimes it’s hard to follow.  I’ve done all of the work and all you have to do is consume the customized information.

Other lists I have curated:

Puerto Rico, Paris, Chicago , Massachusetts ,

Some lists can be specifically about skills such as writing and book publishing or business.

Why Content Curate

Because it makes me a thought leader on these travel and news related subjects by keeping me up to do date on the latest information.  I’ve also built wonderful relationships with people I would not have otherwise met.

 “Quality, relevant content can’t be spotted by an algorithm. You can’t subscribe to it. You need people – actual human beings – to create or curate it.” Kristina Halvorson

“Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place with curators in museums; others we take for walks.” Roger A. Caras

“A life accumulates a collection: of people, work and perplexities. We are all our own curators. ”  Richard Fortey
