75 Great Mobile Twitterers (#FollowFriday)

May 29, 2009 by Lisa Oshima | Mobile

It’s Friday, and that means it’s “Follow Friday” on Twitter (users recommend the twitterers they find interesting). I haven’t participated much in Follow Friday in the past- not because I don’t follow great people – just the opposite. I follow so many interesting people that I can’t fit them all into a single tweet.  I’m currently following 535 people, and I either know them or want to know them because I think they’ve said something interesting.  In honor of Follow Friday, I thought I’d share some of the most interesting and prolific “tweeps” I follow that tweet regularly on mobile topics. 

If I’ve left you out, I apologize… I’m sure you’re incredibly interesting, and it must have been an oversight… Or, it’s because you’re in mobile but you don’t tweet much about it… Or you keep a low profile on Twitter.  Please add to my list by posting a comment.
