Annotations Overview |

Annotations Overview | "Annotation Guidelines

The goal of Annotations are to bring more structured data to tweets to allow for better discovery of data and richer interactions. We aim to borrow heavily from, and use when possible, existing standards like RDFa, Microformats, Open Graph Protocol, AB Meta and Annotations will be a community-driven effort, but we aim to offer some initial guidance to hopefully create a critical mass of data that benefits users and developers. We want to lean towards loose-typing and minimal requirements while balancing that with enough structure to determine some semantics about the content or expression."
