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 twenty-eighth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
Whether you’re just getting into coding or manage a portfolio of Fortune 500 projects, the need to host your code in the cloud, collaborate with team members and/or an ever-expanding community of 1.85+ million developers is seemingly impossible to ignore.
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of San Francisco-based code sharing simplification company, GitHub (@github) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who has recently unveiled a free mobile app…available exclusively on Android (sorry iOS).
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who has recently unveiled a free mobile app…available exclusively on Android” in the same sentence.

More about GitHub
GitHub is the best place to share code with friends, co-workers, classmates, and complete strangers. Over a million people use GitHub to build amazing things together.
With the collaborative features of GitHub.com, our desktop and mobile apps, and GitHub Enterprise, it has never been easier for individuals and teams to write better code, faster.
Originally founded by Tom Preston-Werner, Chris Wanstrath, and PJ Hyett to simplify sharing code, GitHub has grown into the largest code host in the world.
Here you will find a list of 25 accounts @github is following. They are all active users who we deem worthy of checking out, retweeting and following. Enjoy!

In summary, it looks as though @github likes to follow Twitter users and accounts who are closely affiliated with GitHub. What @github may “lack” in eclecticism is made up for tenfold through organization and efficiency. How’s that for a twitter “following” summary, eh?
It’s a pretty impressive list, right? It is somewhat “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!
