Have you discovered Topsy? Topsy is a search engine powered by tweets:
Topsy is a new kind of search engine, with a new way of looking at the Internet. Topsy doesn’t think the Internet is a collection of documents. Or even a web of documents. Topsy sees the Internet as a stream of conversations. Topsy treats people differently from the webpages they create and the things they say. And Topsy sees that people in every community are connected in a web of relationships, where each person influences other people to read, talk and think about things.
Topsy also measures influence--the likelihood that when someone speaks (or tweets) people are listening (or retweeting). They also maintain a list of the Top 100, Top 1K, and Top 5K new links posted each day by influential people on Twitter.
It's a pretty fascinating snapshot of the online universe. Very educational--and very opposite of this Twitter feed: @TheMime--which is perhaps the silliest thing ever. For the real punchline, though, check out the number of people following him.
