Follow Friday is a twitter trend to promote Friends, like minded people, people of interest, on Twitter.
Les Cochrane quite rightly noted that a random list of names means nothing, he’d much rather have a select few names and a reason why they’d be good to follow.
I decided to do a bit of both, and use my blog to talk about those on Twitter I follow, and why I think you should follow them too.
I’ll only recommend a maximum of ten per week and will set up a category so you can find them should you so wish.
This weeks 10, i went with the first ten people I followed on Twitter and so this is actually just as much a gateway into their online presence which is why I followed them and continue to follow them;
