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 seventeenth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
Did you “Tweet-a-Beer” at SXSW this year? If not, then you may not yet be familiar with this self-professed magical link between Twitter and PayPal, which we forgive you for … this time!
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of Portland, OR-based Twitter commerce service, Chirpify (@chirpify) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who managed to sign up a massive 2 users per second during SXSW 2012.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who managed to sign up a massive 2 users per second during SXSW 2012″ in the same sentence.

More about Chirpify
Chirpify turns Tweets into transactions, enabling consumers and businesses to buy, sell, donate and transact on Twitter.
These are social, device agnostic, frictionless, in-stream, one step payments. We do this in real time at scale.
By removing all frictions of a traditional payments or e-commerce system, Chirpify transforms Twitter from a broadcast platform into a transactional one. To transact on Twitter Chirpify users need only Tweet simple commands such as “buy”, “pay” and “donate”.
The combination of frictionless one step transactions, social commerce, and Twitter’s real-time reach, is what makes Chirpify such a powerful platform.
Here you will find a list of 25 accounts @chirpify is following. They are all active users who we deem worthy of checking out, retweeting and following. Enjoy!

In summary, it looks as though @chirpify likes to follow Twitter users who are higher-ups in innovative technology, which includes those who hold job titles such as founder, co-founder, executive vice president, director or strategist and focus on topics including marketing, open-source, leadership, speaking, investment and communications … to name just a few. There is also a bit of favoritism (or friendship if you will) between Chirpify and the likes of Verdino LLC and Upstart Labs.
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 tweet us up!
