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 over five hundred #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first twenty three weeks of 2011, the AudioAcrobat team is showing no sign of slowing the conjoining of our weekly #FF tweets with this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on the mobile platform that helps you increase customer loyalty as you reward your most faithful fans – StiQRd – and was so well received by our readers that we are finding ourselves physically unable to throttle down this roaring WordPress-powered engine which pumps our weekly stream of fun and factual tweets directly to our readers’ (iPad, iPhone, Android, MacBook Pro, iMac, DELL) screens.
…Now to connect with a four-day, multi-stage camping festival held on a beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee every June!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @Bonnnaroo, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the two hundred twenty six accounts @Bonnaroo is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock and roll.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “one of the 50 moments that changed the history of rock and roll” in the same sentence. Pretty spiffy, huh?

In summary, it looks as though @Bonnaroo likes to follow musicians … ones that have (presumably) performed at their festival over the last decade. They also appear to follow key players in the production of theirs and several other large festival-styled events around the United States.
That’s a pretty impressive list, right? It is pretty specific though … Perhaps our readers would like to recommend a Twitter account to profile during an upcoming #FollowFriday? If so, we urge them to comment below — or send us a tweet — making sure their voice is heard.
