#Follow Any Day

More and more people are getting on board the Twitter train.  One thing that I hear from  people who are either new to Twitter or aren’t sure about it – who do I follow?  A trend that got started is the perfect solution to the answer and it’s known as FollowFriday.   Every Friday you are encouraged to suggest to your Tweeps who you consider follow worthy.  I love this idea and have contributed to it each and every Friday since I’ve learned about it.  Only flaw I’ve seen is there was no real way to know why I should follow one person vs. another.  When I’ve tweeted my #followfriday recommendations I’ve always tried to include what these people have in common.  So in other words I categorized my Tweeps (gee, I do work in a library you know – sorry no Dewey decimal or LOC subject headings just basic tagging here).

My list of who I am following is growing.  I have lots of different groups (library folks, Linux people, business, news, etc).  So I decided to break down my groups and list them here on my blog then you can follow these fine folks any day of the week.  Listed in order as they appear in my Twitter account.
