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 1100+ #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first forty seven weeks of 2011, the AudioAcrobat team is proud to announce this week’s featured profile … a multi-touch product from Microsoft which allows users to manipulate digital content by the use of gesture recognition!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @surface, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the two hundred sixty one accounts @surface is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind the product which brings people together to connect, learn and decide using touch and everyday objects!
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the product which brings people together to connect, learn and decide using touch and everyday objects” in the same sentence. Fancy, huh?

More about Microsoft Surface
The Microsoft Surface® platform brings people together to connect, learn, and decide. It enables experiences that change the way people collaborate and connect with a 360-degree interface. And, with PixelSense™, Microsoft Surface sees and responds to touch and real world objects—supporting more than 50 simultaneous inputs.
This experience comes to life in the new 40 inch Samsung SUR40 for Microsoft Surface that can be used as a table, on the wall, or embedded in other fixtures or furniture.

In summary, it looks as though @surface likes to follow Twitter users who are either presently or in the past have been affiliated with Microsoft. Any experienced accounts focusing on software, business or development are likely to be followed and users will find a cultivated list of creative, senior-level individuals who manage others and large projects alike.
That’s a pretty impressive list, right? It is pretty specific though … Perhaps you’d like to recommend a Twitter account to profile during an upcoming #FollowFriday? If so, please comment below or send us a tweet.
