A Few People to Follow in Twitter

I sent a list to a colleague new to Twitter today, and I thought I’d share it here. I selected people I’m following that might interest Sydney. She’s an extremely talented performing arts teacher, very artsy and cool. This list will give her a range of what you can do with Twitter. So, this is sort of my recommended list of people to start following plus a few others that I thought might specifically interest her. Any others you’d add?

UPDATE:

This isn’t supposed to be a Best Of list… just some suggestions custom tailored for Sydney. It includes people in her industry, a few of our current colleagues, funky people I think she’d be interested in follow. It’s also just a basic list to get start with, and my advice would be to listen to these people’s twitter conversations and figure out who other people that are worth listening to!

My Twitterverse had a couple of other suggestions:

  1. This is a great list Lucy, thanks for sharing. There were several folks you listed whose blogs I had not seen before, and I’m glad to add them to my aggregator! 🙂
