Each Friday, I like to highlight different people that I’m following on Twitter. I do it as a blog post, and let Twitterfeed send the message over to Twitter. Then, in the rest of my blog post, I can provide thoughts on why I am following these people on Twitter.
This is a special edition dedicated to people I met with at the America’s Future Now Conference.
@policylink Dan Lavoie works for PolicyLink. I had not heard of PolicyLink before the conference, or if I had, it hadn’t made it onto my radar. As the conference was getting going, Dan and I got into a discussion about blogging, policy, and linking all of it back to our everyday lives.
@cognitivepolicy Joe Brewer, Founder and Director of Cognitve Policy Works. I ran into Joe at breakfast on Wednesday and we talked about many common interests. I really look forward to staying in touch with him and sharing more ideas.
@wellstoneaction I’m generally not a fan of following organizations on Twitter. I like to interact with people. I don’t know who the person or people that tweet for Wellstone Action are, but it is a great organization and their communications director, Elana Wolowitz, did a great job at a session, New Media Organizing: Using Cutting-Edge Online Advocacy and Technology Techniques.
@jephilip Jeff Lucas also attended that session and did some good tweeting of it. @fedor4pa Michael J Fedor was also at that session. Michael also attended a session that @quinnelk Kenneth Quinnell and I were in about State Blogging.
@j_ro Jason Rosenbaum also did some great tweeting from #afn and deserves a shout out.
So, that is the first part of my #FollowFriday for this week.
