Twitter launches Twellow 2.0 – a Free Yellow Pages service

Written by Ann Stanley on 19th December 2011

Twitter has launched a new version of its free yellow pages directory – Twellow 2.0 – to help you connect with millions of public Twitter users.

Twellow was first launched in 2007 but as the social network has grown to be one of the biggest in the world the directory has grown to allow users to find Tweeple who have similar interests, live in the same area or are simply deemed worth following.

You can search hundreds of categories and there are different search features to help you find people including Twellowhood.

Twellowhood allows you to find users that matter in your neighbourhood. Simply click on the map to see how many influential users there are and start browsing the results list.

You can see in the image below that Leicester has 5,806 people in the Twellowhood directory.










By clicking on the figure you will then get a list of the 5,806 users you can then follow from Leicester:

When you sign-up to the directory you have a number of options to help you boost your presence in the directory searches.

Be found in 10 categories

Once you have signed up can add yourself to 10 categories so that more people will be likely to find you. Simply go to a category you want to appear in and click the ‘add to category’ button.

Create an extended bio

You have an extra 2,000 characters to create an extended bio on your Twellow account. This is your chance to sell yourself, your achievements and capabilities in more detail.

Twellow button

Just like the ‘Follow me’ button or ‘like’ button there is a Twellow button available for you to add to your website or blog to direct people to your Twellow profile.

Twellow is just another tool extension to one of the most popular social networks around. If you need any help establishing a social presence contact our team today to find out how we can help.
