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 800+ #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first thirty two weeks of 2011, the AudioAcrobat team seems to have our feet firmly planted in the sand when it comes to #FF … much like this little guy.
With last week’s feature focusing on the news site influential decision makers turn to every day – Bloomberg News – being so well received, shared and re-tweeted by our readers, we’re once again back at it for another ½ fortnight’s worth of fun and factual tweets combined for your reading (and clicking) pleasure in this here WordPress weblog.
…Now to connect with the most recent startup to have been acquired by Twitter!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @bagchk, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the five hundred forty six accounts @bagchk is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a fun way to share and discover what’s inside our “bags”.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a fun way to share and discover what’s inside our ‘bags’.” in the same sentence. Pretty spiffy, huh?

@bagchk: Personally assembled collections of what people use for their favorite activities

More about Bagcheck:
Whether it’s computing, photography, cooking, or sports —we all have a set of favorite items for doing what we love. Bagcheck is a fun way to share and discover what’s inside our “bags”.
Bagcheck was started by a few geeks who love their gear. We realized we’re not the only ones that spent lots of time discussing the products we love to use. So we made Bagcheck to allow people to talk about and share lists of the stuff they use and why.
