My Favorite Twitter Follows
April 27, 2011 Leave a comment
I wanted to follow up a prior post on my favorite startup blogs with a post on a handful of my favorite Twitter follows. These are a group of folks, most of whom I only know by reputation, that have something to say or news to share about technology, startups or entertainment. As I mentioned previously, Twitter has become a go-to source of news and insights for me, an incredibly efficient way to absorb a lot of information quickly. Enjoy!
