twitter-birdTwitter, it’s just the “bees knees” of the web social community. Sure it might be a 10th the size of Facebook (did you know Facebook apparently grows the size of twitter EVERY DAY?), still Twitter is the place everyone wants to be today.

I’ve been on Twitter for a little while now (not a huge amount of time mind you) and have racked up over 3,000 tweets – others have way way more than that! There is a LOT of stuff on Twitter, but there are a few key people who I think you should follow!

  • Guy Kawasaki – okay, Guy is a given really, he’s one of the top Technology focused tweeters
  • Brian Clark - the guru behind www.copyblogger.com always has great tweets
  • Amy Lupold Bair – otherwise known as @ResourcefulMom has great giveaways, tip for parents and links to fantastic blog posts
  • Chris Pirillio – the epitome of geek culture, Chris’ 24/7 online life is both funny and informative
  • Stephen Fry – this crazy UK fella travels the world and tweets while doing it. Always fresh & honest
  • Adii Rockstar – the original “rockstar” adii is a must follow for any wordpress designer
  • Ryan Carson – a living legend when it comes to online design, Ryan’s tweets are full of gems beit links or tips, or random comments

Yeap that is one good way to find out who sends worth while tweets – but sometimes retweeted tweets are just silly comments rather than tweets of merit :)
