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 forty-first #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
While there seems to be a plethora of tech news sources on the Web these days, only one can emphatically state that they are partnered with Vox Media, previously known as Sports Blogs, Inc., and with forward-thinking articles on popular topics (such as Rethinking the App Switcher for the iPhone 5 (mockups)), we are pleased to share their unique take on technology news in 2012!
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of NYC-based tech news source, The Verge (@verge) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind the definitive source for the latest in technology news, reviews, and up-to-the-minute scoops.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “the definitive source for the latest in technology news, reviews, and up-to-the-minute scoops” in the same sentence.
