On Fridays users of Twitter (used to) recommend to their followers who to follow by appending their @handles with the hashtag #FF (follow Friday).
Today, starting this Monday (in a first of what will undoubtedly not become a convention), I spit in the face of this tradition. And besides, I will do more, I will tell you the reason why you should be following these fine tweeps (shudder).
And here they are, in no particular order:
Simon White is a fine creative strategist, copywriter and digital thinker, based in London. He tweets super links and resources. Smart cat.
Ivo is a contrarian and one of the smartest people around. He writes op-eds for a variety of publications and likes to get climatologists hot under the collar. Ivo has just published a book about environmental terrorism. You may disagree with him (as I sometimes do), but when you take him on, come armed with your well-researched facts because this Vegter does his homework.
Advertising creative team, somewhere in London's W14 area (one presumes), stranded on a chair at a desk, floating funny tweets in tiny virtual glass bottles on the Twitter Ocean.
The one and only William Gibson, author of much cyberpunk goodness. Tweets random brilliantness that comes his, and Mrs. GreatDismal's way.
Founder and CCO of Joe Public in Johannesburg. His enthusiasm for life is infectious and his purpose of promoting education is inspiring.
That's it for this week. And because I follow many more fine generators of content, I get to choose another five next Monday.
