The Tweet Elite

Twitter:

Similar to how we help businesses make advertising simple and effective on Twitter, we occasionally build features that enable these public figures — verified users — to engage more easily with the world through Twitter.

Interesting to see Twitter developing an effective Elite, with tools and services the rest of us don’t have access to. The Blue Tick Elite seems to be mapping pretty closely to to existing media power structures, too. It’s the big media, celebrities, and their ilk.

From disruptive to assimilated?
