    What is the main reason for you (anyone reading this) to curate social content? Is it to share that curation work with others? Or is it for personal use (archiving, discovery)? 

    Since apparently only about 8% of Americans are on Twitter, it seems like a good way to share social content with non-Twitter users…

    Its all about your followers need, if you able to get and understand what your followers need and at what time they need than no one stop you to get viral over the twitter

    Most of these curation tools have aspects that encourage deeper social interaction – so yes, on one hand, republishing your tweets (preferably curated) can help to deepen and widen engagement.

    And on the other hand, as I mention, it provides you with SEO benefit.

    I have had the best success with Storify and Paper.li.

     Yesterday I was using an article on Inc, and the writer suggested to utilize the power of LinkedIn instead of spreading links on Twitter, I know the power of Twitter but I’m agreed at some points that If you’re having million of Twitter followers, you and followers don’t even interact with your tweets it is not the return of your time which you invest to gain a large number of followers.

    Ric Dragon – Thanks for these flat out valuable insites into curating tweets, curation tools like Storigy and Twylah, and the SEO ramifications of it all. 

    One tool you didn’t mention is Dashter, which is an insanely innovative WordPress plugin. I saw a presentation by the developer, Dave Cole, at a WordPress Meetup a few months back and was duly impressed. 

    Be warned, it’s a premium plugin. But for those that consider themselves social media pros, it’s a no brainer. http://dashter.com
