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.
Welcome back for the second #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog of 2012! After jumping right in last week, we’re swimming right along in announcing this week’s featured profile … a company focused on making the world’s knowledge computable.
Here, we will dive deeper into the Tweets of @wolfram_alpha and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind the company with a long-term goal of making all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone!
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “the company with a long-term goal of making all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone” in the same sentence. We think that is an awesome goal and wish them well in all of their accomplishment.
