I've talked to the analytics team. Three main metrics we're going to work to surface on something like <> initially (and maybe even an API so you all can build experiences/explorers around annotations):

1) All time most used namespaces/keys.
2) Trending namespace/keys.
3) Most widely adopted namespace/keys (i.e. not necessarily the most used but the ones used by the highest number of different client applications)

    This is a great idea for how to bootstrap and fuel the adoption
    and consensus on namespaces and key names. I'm going to talk to
    our analytics team and see if we can surface analytics on the most
    used namespaces and those namespace's most used keys.

        Another 2c: you should think about publishing numbers/stats for
        annotations. Easiest to start on the level of namespaces. Publish
        stats about popularity of namespaces: how many tweets and how many
        users use which namespaces. And don't do "that's a good idea

        are still many moving parts and we are thinking of it for the

        would be a good measure for community to inform what namespaces to
        support, what works and what doesn't, etc.

Please take a look at this blog post which covers the issue of Structured Data [1].

At the end of the day, every Tweet is a uniquely identifiable data object (entity). Annotations ultimately come down to making simple statements about the attributes of a Tweet, thus the Entity-Attribute-Value (EAV) works here as it does everywhere else re. data representation flexibility (XML, JSON, and other data representation formats).


1. -- Data 3.0 Manifesto (all about Structured Data and the EAV Model) 2. -- an example of compact EAV style 3-tuple approach to annotations
3. -- ditto .
