50 Friends I Met in Twitterland- You MUST Meet

Twitterland is a real place.  Well, that is what I keep telling myself.  There are people from all over the world there.  It is like having them next door to you.  No time zones, and instant communication. All you need to go there is a computer or a smart phone.  Before you go to Twitterland though, understand it is hard to get out of this place.  You can get lost there easily.  It is so big that it would take an entire lifetime to navigate through.  

I have had fun in Twitterland, but I have to tell you, it doesn't pay my bills and my family gets sick of me going there because I often get lost.  In January, I wrote a post called A Quest For A Thousand Twitter Followers.  It is now May and I should be crossing that finish line soon.  I am rounding 3rd base. 

I wanted to take a moment on a Friday afternoon, to make a call-out to all of the people I have met in Twitterland.  Friends.  People that I genuinely have gotten to know and respect.  I didn't want to write about me. Instead, I  wanted to let others know what I already know.  I want you to get to know them the way I have gotten to know them.  So, go ahead, send them a tweet. 

Here are 50 people you MUST follow.  They are real.  You may know them already, but if you don't you should.

Thanks. I enjoyed meeting U2. And our acquaintance is still fresh enough that you're one of the 50 people who actually notice what I do.

Everyone on this list has impacted me in some way.  I appreciate your friendship and look forward to continue to follow.  I am the newbie and you are the real deals.  You are the ones that have made a difference.  Those that don't know you, need to know you.

thanks, I appreciate it! (Although I should point out that my twitter handle above is misspelled - it should be @JobBoardDoctor). Thanks!

Comment by Christopher de Mers on May 3, 2013 at 10:52am
Wow - I am honored to be mentioned with these people. That's amazing! I'm speechless - that's even more amazing! TY Will!
Comment by Amy Ala Miller on May 3, 2013 at 12:23pm

Thank you Will!! :) Most of these people would be on my list as well, but there are a few new names to me. Thanks so much for sharing!

This is great!  Thanks Will...It is so amazing the people you meet on social media.  HAPPY FRIDAY

Jeff- sorry about the misspelling.  I changed it.  Happy Friday all!  For those of you who don't know some of these folks, reach out to them and include them in your circle.  Great people.
