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 1200+ #FollowFriday recommendations on Twitter throughout the first forty eight weeks of 2011, the AudioAcrobat team is proud to announce this week’s featured profile … a semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability!
In today’s posting, we will not only share this week’s featured #FollowFriday account, @wordpress, but will also take our readers in for a closer look at twenty five of the one hundred ninety seven accounts @wordpress is currently following … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind the web software used by millions to create beautiful websites and blogs!
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the web software used by millions to create beautiful websites and blogs” in the same sentence. Fancy, huh?

More about WordPress.org
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

In summary, it looks as though @wordpress likes to follow Twitter users who work with WordPress (.org & .com) and Automattic in developing ‘stuff’ (ex. plugins, code, etc.). These users come from many different countries around the world, describe themselves as tech ‘ninjas’ and are heavy into all forms of media (ex. audio, video, etc.).
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.
