The first on is We Follow! This is a low maintenance site. It is very easy to use! You don't have to sign in or do anything special to start using this site. As you type in key words it automatically generates the top keyword searches in your field. So let's say you are looking for summer camps for the performing arts? If you put in visual art you don't get ANY tags. However, if you put in painting, you get 805! Not bad, getting closer! Put in art and you get 9,837! That's a nice number! Now, it's not as high as Ellen DeGeneres @TheEllenShow with over 5 million tweets, but it's a good start. Play around with We Follow and let me know what you think!
I love visuals so I made a quick and dirty chart!
One thing to remember even though these numbers are pretty high, you want to add that local touch to your search. Make sure you include your city, state, and country. This will help you find people you share common interests with, but people who live near you. That's very important if you are a small business!
One blogger, Don Reisinger said, "Twellow is a directory of Twitter users that have been placed into categories based on their profile information. It's one of the ugliest sites in this roundup."

I must admit, this blog is about resources that I find and that I want to share with you! So it may seem this is an old topic, but after I discovered We Follow, I did a quick search for other directories and I found blogs written by other bloggers on the same subject. I don't plan to go through all of them. I like We Follow's simple format. I feel like Twellow will be sending me emails non-stop. But with the sheer volume of choices it seems like a great place to be! I'm only offering you two choices. It's kind of like when you go to The Cheesecake Factory and they have so many options but can only really eat one thing. Check out these links if you have time, but my bet is after you look at two extremes, you'll be able to make a more informed decision!
Here are the links to the other bloggers!
Now, this list gets ridiculous!
Top 8 Twitter Directories
14 Twitter Directories to Find New Friends
Find'Em On Twitter: 15 Twitter Directories Compared
20 Twitter Directories to Find More Friends
21 Twitter Directories and Follow Finders to Expand Your Twittersphere (Uh, this one is way too long!)
I told you it's ridiculous! I didn't read all of these, I did my own search and I'm offering you two! Who has time to search over 56 directories with unavoidable overlap?
