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 sixteenth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
If you’ve ever had a brilliant idea that required a bit of funding before it could take flight and didn’t know where to turn to for solutions, your real friends should’ve recommend you start a crowd-sourced Kickstarter project and created awesome packages to offer those who are generous enough to kick-in a fundraising contribution.
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of NYC-based fundraising service, Kickstarter (@kickstarter) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who has, in only three short years, paved a brand new way to fund and follow creativity.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who has, in only three short years, paved a brand new way to fund and follow creativity” in the same sentence.
Have a project that is in serious need of funding? Get started at Kickstarter.com!

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!
