After making dozens of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first eight weeks of 2011, our staff is showing no sign of slowing down when it comes to the integration of AudioAcrobat’s weekly #FF tweets into this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on an artificial intelligence program developed by IBM designed to answer questions posed in natural language – IBM Watson – and was so well received by our readers that we’d be crazy not to continue this weekly “trend” of blog-supported, fun and factual tweets.
Now, onto the public radio network reporting from the (protester-filled) streets of Wisconsin!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @WPR, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the four hundred fifteen Twitter accounts @WPR is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of a 32 station strong network which, since 1917, has been offering listeners a stimulating means by which to exchange ideas, an efficient way to get caught up on the day’s news events, and an entertaining musical selection, fit for all audiences.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a 32 station strong network which, since 1917, has been offering listeners a stimulating means by which to exchange ideas, an efficient way to get caught up on the day’s news events, and an entertaining musical selection, fit for all audiences” in the same sentence.
