For Facebook, there’s sending friend requests, and for Google Plus, you add people to your circles. But as anyone who has a Twitter handle knows, on Twitter, we follow and we tweet at people.
Enter today’s #FollowFriday, or #FF. If you’ve been on Twitter and don’t know what this is, it’s a Friday standby where Twitter users recommend a list of accounts to others. For example, you might tweet, “#FF @itworldca @itbusinessca @compdealernews” to encourage your followers to follow these accounts, especially if you see value in their tweets.
For this edition of #FF, here are a few Twitter handles that we think are worth a click on the “follow” button.
