The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
After making hundreds of #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first seventeen weeks of 2011, our team is showing no sign of letting up when it comes to the merger of AudioAcrobat’s weekly #FF tweets into this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on the executive branch agency of the US government whose mission is to ‘pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research’ – NASA – and was so well received by our readers that we’d be mad to not continue this weekly trend of blog-integrated, fun and factual tweets.
Now to connect with a web publication that offers technology news and analysis, as well as profiling of startup companies, products, and websites!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @TechCrunch, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the eight hundred twenty five Twitter accounts @TechCrunch is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of the group-edited blog about technology start-ups, particularly the Web 2.0 sector.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the group-edited blog about technology start-ups, particularly the Web 2.0 sector” in the same sentence.
