Since I’m making my own Twitter rules, my first Follow Friday is .. A Follower Friday.
It’s humbling that the likes of @jasonfalls, @chrisbrogan and @bethharte follow me back on Twitter. Chances are you’re already following these smart PR and Social media folks, and rightly so: they got serious game.
So here is a big “No, Thank YOU!” to them and a few other people I enjoy following, and have been good enough to follow me in return.
@ginidietrich From what I’ve seen of her blog, tweets and social profiles Gini Dietrich is smart, savvy and engaged. We all follow up on comments on our blogs, but what about elsewhere? I’ve had occasion to link to Gini’s blog for other posts, and she’s quick to share the comment love. It’s so nice to have the support.
@augieray When Social Media Today picked his Twitter rules as a featured blog, Augie Ray had to do double duty, replying to comments there and back on his own blog, more than 100 total. Very engaged, nicely done sir.
@PRwise Roger Johnson has a professional style, which I like, he still responds and replies and shares some good stuff on PR and journalism. It’s the nice mix of business, personal and conversational that doesn’t clog up my Twitter stream.
@MarcieCasas Another person I’ve “met” on Twitter and LinkedIn who’s also great about commenting on blog posts, Marcie Casas doesn’t tweet 50 times a day, but when she does it’s usually something reading. It’s a less-is-more style I appreciate.
Count yourself lucky if these folks follow you. They are smart, creative and even though they may have 1,000s of followers, they really engage and interact with them. Even slackers like me.
