Follow Friday on Twitter


Follow Friday is a recent phenomenon on Twitter where users recommend other users that should be followed.  Micah Baldwin of Lijit started Follow Friday and you can read about it on Mashable.  I’ve created this post to share some of my favorite recommendations with a small explanation.  This certainly isn’t final and will be edited in the future. If you were left off, it was likely a mistake and I apologize.   Be sure to add yourself and your suggestions in the comments section as I’ll be tweeting this list out in the future.

    I’d like to suggest my TweetCampSA co-organizers, @epodcaster and @andinarvaez, two of the awesome women leading the social media charge in San Antonio!

  2. Nan Palmero June 26, 2009 at 10:15 pm #

    Absolutely, Colleen. Additionally, I talked about TweetCampSA on Great Day Sunday that will be on this Sunday. Thank you for the suggestion, with these lists, great people always get left off.

  5. Colleen Pence June 26, 2009 at 11:03 pm #

    Can’t wait to see your spot on Sunday! Yes, great people get left off but that’s because there are so many of them that it would be difficult to remember them all. Good problem to have! And, cool that you encourage readers to leave their suggestions.

    I’m covered in awesome sauce? Well thank ye kindly, good sir. I’ve watched you grow into an awesome Twitter personality and you truly are one of my favorites. You’re a good boy, Ghetto Bird . Yes, I know I shouldn’t show favoritism. I’m not sorry! And put some clothes on that dang bluebird. It’s nekkid! *covers eyes*

    Thanks to Colleen for the shout out and to Nan for the post. This is what #followfriday should be all about. Thanks for helping give it a bit more substance than 140 characters usually leave room for.

    Oh and I love your description but I don’t respond to chick…if my co-workers found out I didn’t comment after all the grief and lessons on chick vs. dude (and how it’s not the same) they’d never let me forget it! 🙂

    Thank you for making my day though…it was otherwise kind of long and lousy!
