#FF It’s Follow Friday on Twitter

Many people I follow on Twitter take part in Follow Friday.  This is a quick way of recommending people we follow ourselves, indicated by the tag #FF.  Some produce simple lists of people’s Twitter names, others give little explanations of why.  One (SmallCasserole) links to a blog post which he updates as and when.  As Friday is often my busiest day of all and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I am going to do something similar but make a grid.  I’ve tried to work out categories which are not so much why I follow them but why you might like to.  Some people come into more than one category, of course.  I haven’t included people who haven’t tweeted for a while and this is definitely a work in progress.  I’d be pleased to get feedback: if you feel you’re in the wrong category, or missing from one, or want to suggest someone.

Most people here have blogs and/or Facebook profiles as well, but if they’re on Twitter I’ve only shown that.  If you like them you can find out more there.  @name indicates Twitter, name alone is Facebook.  Blogs are already in my blogroll.

25/8 is drawn from 24/7.  These are people who seem to pack more into one day than I can ever imagine myself managing, and they do it every day and report on it!  They’re people who achieve a lot and have very full lives.  But many of them have suffered the premature loss of a partner or close relative and/or recovered from serious illness themselves – perhaps the two are not unconnected.
