After making hundreds of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter over the last several months, it finally dawned on us to integrate our #FF efforts into this nifty WordPress.com weblog we contribute to several times each week.
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @nytimes, but also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the one hundred eighty seven Twitter accounts @nytimes is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of America’s most popular online newspaper.
Yep. We just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “America’s most popular online newspaper” in the same sentence.
