Some Twitterers Worth Following

I started Twittering on April 5, 2008. What started out as a 30-day experiment, has now turned into part of my daily life. I have written about 12 Reasons to Start Twittering. I even created A Beginner’s Guide to Twitter.

So far, I have more than 1,600 people following me, but I only follow about 180. (Some people, for reasons I can’t fathom, think that they must follow everyone who follows them. I do well to keep up with the people I am following.)I won’t reiterate all the reasons I continue to use Twitter, but suffice it to say, it makes it easier to stay connected to the people I love, enjoy, and learn from. As such, I thought I would share a list of just some of the people I am following and who they are. Consider this a sort of Twitter “Shout Out.”
