#Twitter, #FollowFriday & Alonis.


A Twitter Love/Hate Post

After much thought and careful consideration, I have decided to post my #FollowFriday recommendations here, instead of on Twitter.


First and foremost, I really do enjoy following 90% of the ppl I follow on Twitter. Some of you, not so much.


What?
Just being honest!
Thank goodness for TweetDeck. :-)

Cruise thru the list of accts I follow and see if any interest you.

Secondly, I obviously can not give #FF suggestions for every one that I want to, every Friday.

With all of that being said, let's get this Twitter Friday ritual out of the way, so I may get back to work...or surf the net...or play Guitar Hero, whatever. ;-P


#FollowFriday Yay Area PPL

These are the local folks in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. If you are local, friendly, funny & have something of value to offer, @reply me. I will be happy to add you, IF you're not a tool.

@Calamari Emeryville, CA
Brilliant designer (I say so, it must be true.)
Not only does he "design things", but he LOVES music & art.
Big plus in my book.

Twitter style: Content Sharer/Minimal Conversationalist

@pixel_jockey San Francisco, CA
A graphic designer that shares an abundent amount of content.
He converses. He is sweet. He contributes.
I click on 90% of the links he shares on Twitter. The 10% that I don't? I'm just too busy.

@JoshuaLionheart Oakland, CA
Josh is, well, Josh. He is a BIG teddy bear that has a heart of gold BUT is a wee bit sensitive. ;-P
He never pulls any punches & always makes me laugh. I couldn't imagine my Twitterverse without him in it. .com .gov .net and #InsideJokesAreOurSpecialty.

Twitter style: Social Butterfly/Conversationalist/Smart ass


@LishaBisha Walnut Creek, CA
An art director/graphic designer at @DiabloMagazine, an East Bay lifestyle publication that I have loved for years and also was sweet enough to post a micro article on @Calamari & I for their May 2009 issue.
She is witty, caring and just plain cool.

Twitter style: Content Sharer/Conversationalist

@LaneHartwell Alameda, CA
Lane is an extremely talented freelance photographer.
I met Lane for the first time at the Oscar Grant protests in Oakland and although we have not met up again in public, we do end up at the same events at the same time for the same purpose.
We both share a love of capturing the moment and the emotions present at the time. She just does it a LOT better than me!
She is insightful and passionate about her work and life. I appreciate that.

Bay Area Girls

@TheTateWay @SillysGood @BasilLeaf @Mactavish @kmcfarla @mahglotte @Egratto @meghan1018 @Adrigonzo @terrytoons
(I am sure I left some ppl out. Let me know)
These ladies are WICKED smart, kind & very friendly. They provide me a window into their daily lives and are always there to talk.
(sorry this is short girls. I needed to speed this post up! LOL XOXO!)

Bay Area Boys

@BlackMoz @KennethLove @LMLRadioHost @ClifSoulo @inferno10 @adrielhampton
These guys are genuine, goodhearted gents. Men that we need more of in this world.

*psst* Adriel is running for Congress (#CA10).
A local politician that is not full of B.S. (I had NO idea that was POSSIBLE! LOL)

Bay Area News Sources that SO deserve a lot of #FollowFriday Love
I am sure I missed some, again. Please let me know!

Yes, more for #FollowFriday

@TnslTwn Phoenix, Arizona
Photographer/Designer
This man is F.U.N.N.Y.
There is not a celeb Twitter fight, celeb distress call or celeb trainwreck I will miss as long as I follow him.
He also is caring and has a great head on his shoulders.

Twitter style: Thought Provoking/Conversationalists

@Smashadv
Copywriter/CEO
Brilliant & witty, this man has opened my eyes to a lot. I'm not really sure what, but he has.
LOL
This man knows business, design, art, marketing/branding, politics and how to treat others with respect.
I'm sure he knows a lot more, but it doesn't matter right now. What DOES matter is the fact that his bio states: Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
I instantly fall in love with anyone that makes a reference to The Princess Bride
. Nuff said.

Twitter style: Thought Provoking/Conversationalists/Content Sharer

PPL that I would seriously worry were dead if they stopped tweeting

They always make me smile, share information and will chat up a GOOD convo with you.

@DNas @1indienation @LouieC3 @orangearrows @marquearts @EmmaRileySutton @Zaibatsu @mangonocturna @winkfromblueyes

Some have called her and I the Bilderbergs of Twitter and others want to see us in a Tweet-off
This saga still is unfolding. ;-) LMAO!
