Follow Friday for March 13, 2009


If you follow me on Twitter you might have noticed that the past few Friday’s I’ve been telling you who I think you should follow on Twitter. Follow Friday started when someone thought it would be a good idea to give a shoutout to the people that they thought were interesting and other people would like to follow. You can read this post about how follow Friday got started. I decided to make this post because I wanted to do a lot of shoutouts in many different categories and why I actually follow these people. Twitter is not only a networking tool it is a great way to gain information and meet new people. So here are some people I think you should follow…

    I agree. Twitter is an amazing networking tool; if used correctly, you can make real connections with people and those people can often help you later in life or point you in the right direction to someone else who can help you out. If you actually use your connections, you can really make a difference in the future… because, often times, it really does come down to who you know not what you know.

    Twitter is becoming quite the behemoth, and lets face it, it is much easier to check on your favourite internet celebs in this manner, than physically checking on their blogs all the time. RSS feeds just don’t do it for me either!
