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 750+ #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first thirty one weeks of 2011, its becoming clear that the AudioAcrobat team is making our stand in the socialsphere … kinda like R.E.M. in 1989 (and yes, we’re facing North).
With last week’s feature focusing on the world’s largest music catalog for social media – Rumblefish – 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 those who provide the top global business news of the day!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @BloombergNews, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the four hundred eighteen accounts @BloombergNews is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) of the news site influential decision makers turn to every day.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the news site influential decision makers turn to every day” in the same sentence. Pretty spiffy, huh?

More about Bloomberg:
In 1981 Bloomberg started out with one core belief: that bringing transparency to capital markets through access to information could increase capital flows, produce economic growth and jobs, and significantly reduce the cost of doing business. Today’s Bloomberg builds on that foundation – everything we do connects decision makers in business, finance and government to a broad and dynamic network of information, news, people and ideas that enables faster, more effective decisions. Come see how we do it.
