Crowdsourcing Tweet Gems from the Tweet Book
Distributed Knowledge

I was recently asked to give my assessment of the newly-released “#CROWDSOURCING Tweet”. The project is a clever collection of the best tweets about crowdsourcing. Everything from highly-academic observations to harsh scrutiny about the practice to historical citations of crowdsourcing’s beginnings. Written by two serial book authors who have utilized crowdsourcing before in their many endeavors, Kiruba Shankar and Mitchell Levy are the perfect pair to curate this discussion. Since my response to their request quickly turned into a rave review, I wanted to share some of the best bits I read with you all.
