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.
Last week’s feature focused on the world’s leading Internet subscription service for enjoying movies and TV shows — Netflix — and was so well received that we are able to justify making a continuing “trend” out of our weekly #FollowFriday tweets finding a more glorified home here on our WordPress weblog.
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @FCC, but also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the twenty eight Twitter accounts @FCC is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of the United States government agency responsible for “regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable.”
Yep. We just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said the United States government agency responsible for “regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable” in the same sentence.
