    WeFollow

    Kevin Rose, the dork who founded Digg, has a new project -- WeFollow.

    WeFollow is a directory for finding people on Twitter.

    Seriously, after creating the largest spam bucket on the entire Internet, the best Kevin can do for a follow-up is a fan site? A directory, seriously? Wow.

    I guess this is a follow-on to Pounce, Kevin's failed Twitter clone.

    Kevin would do better to sell his interest in Digg, take the money, and give it to someone smart for safe-keeping.

    I have nothing against Digg. But that WeFollow sucks big time. Maybe the most useless website ever.

    I actually disagree. Twitter is getting HUGE and people love pop sites like this. Plus, I think it has an amazing design

    But it's just a fan site. Twitter could kill it in a week by building their own directory.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    but Twitter probably won't do that.

    What do you guys have against this website? It's a pretty cool idea, though he doesn't need to only promote the 'important' people...

    Why isn't he doing like TweetSum.Com and sharing the top twitterers (Following / Followers * Updates) Just a random thing... Would be better

    It just seems that with all the money and connections that Kevin Rose has access to, a fan site is a weird choice.

    I guess that Pounce failure hit him really hard.

    Everything starts off small. Maybe he might hit something big in the end with this project. We can't really predict what will happan, so far we have somewhat of an idea.
