Follow Friday - How It Works

Twitter Follow FridayA few people have asked us about #FollowFriday and how it works, so here goes…

#followfriday is a great opportunity to attract relevant followers on Twitter.

But before we get into that, a quick word about hashtags. You may have seen people use the hash # symbol in some of their Twitter posts.

The hash symbol followed by a tag (for example #tps is the hashtag used for the Twitter Power System) is used to identify a topic on Twitter. Hashtags make it much easier to search for all posts on the same topic using the Twitter search engines.

#followfriday is a new phenomenon which we first heard at the start of 2009. The idea, which was invented by @micah, is that every Friday you nominate people who you think are worth following (perhaps the best new people that you’ve met over the past couple of weeks).

To keep up to date with all the developments, on Friday, just use a service such as Tweet Grid or Monitter and search for #followfriday. As the page updates, you will see hundreds or even thousands of people who recommend good people to follow on Twitter.

Alternatively, click here to see all the #followfriday suggestions:

Follow Friday provides you with three major opportunities to attract new followers;

First, if one of your followers nominates you as a good person to follow, this will create a certain amount of interest in your profile.

Second, it will give you plenty of ideas of who to follow, and

Third, as more people are tuned in to the idea of finding new followers, they’re more likely to follow you back.

To take part, just post the Twitter usernames of people you recommend that other people follow, then add #followfriday to your tweet so that oher people can find it.

To make your contribution more valuable, you may want to group the people that you recommend into a certain category. For example, the top 5 cartoonists to follow etc. Alternatively, in each post you could recommend just one person and include a few words about why people should follow them.

So this Friday, make time in your schedule for Twitter and get ready to find a range of new, high-quality followers.

Hi JC,The Postmodernism article generator is great. Perhaps someone should write a string-theory version, surely this is possible.The whole history of Situs Agen Judi Online string theory and how it took over the major physics departments in the US is very similar to the experience many humanities departments had with Postmodern “theory”. The parallels between these two stories are remarkable.

What is a “crackpot.”?John Baez has a definition, which, if used Agen Judi Casino Online without a double standard, implies that his own thesis advisor Irving Segal at MIT was/is a crackpot. Baez’s criteria are perhaps too strong. A distinction must be made between amateurs who clearly have no idea what they are talking about and those with serious credentials in the field they are writing about Bandar Casino Online who are expressing deviant, unpopular, strange (because they are so far ahead of the pack perhaps like Feynman was with his diagrams, or Bohm was with his quantum potential) or perhaps they are wrong, and even “not even wrong” on some particular hobby horse.

Is Lenny Susskind, for example, a “crackpot.”? By Baez’s criterion he would have to be. I don’t think he is. I worked with Lenny at Cornell in 1963-64.
