After making dozens of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first nine 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 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 – Wisconsin Public Radio – 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 California’s most happening event of the week – TED2011!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @tedtalks, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the fifty seven Twitter accounts @tedtalks is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading” in the same sentence.

More about TEDTalks:
TEDTalks began as a simple attempt to share what happens at TED with the world. Under the moniker “ideas worth spreading,” talks were released online. They rapidly attracted a global audience in the millions. Indeed, the reaction was so enthusiastic that the entire TED website has been reengineered around TEDTalks, with the goal of giving everyone on-demand access to the world’s most inspiring voices.
