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.
Last week’s feature focused a ‘socially savvy’ media web browser developed by Tim Howes and Eric Vishria – RockMelt – and was so well received by our readers that we’re once again back at it for another go-around.
…Now to connect with a publishing company and social network built around great stories!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @TheByliner, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the fifty five accounts @TheByliner is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of a company which publishes original narratives by some of the most accomplished writers working today, at lengths that allow them to be read in a single sitting.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a company which publishes original narratives by some of the most accomplished writers working today, at lengths that allow them to be read in a single sitting” in the same sentence. Pretty spiffy, huh?
