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 four weeks of 2011, the AudioAcrobat team is showing no sign of preventing the marriage of our weekly #FF tweets to this nifty WordPress.com weblog.
Last week’s feature focused on a four-day, multi-stage camping festival held on a beautiful 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee every June – Bonnaroo – 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, etc.) screens.
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @rockmelt, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the one hundred thirty two accounts @rockmelt is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of a (free) internet browser that ‘focuses on Google Search and Social Media, in particular Facebook and Twitter.’
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a (free) internet browser that ‘focuses on Google Search and Social Media, in particular Facebook and Twitter’” in the same sentence. Pretty spiffy, huh?

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 you to comment below or send us a tweet.
