#followfriday is dead long live #PhotoFollows

This Friday it became glaringly obvious to me that #followfriday was dead. I was reminded several time that nobody reads the endless stream of lists and lists of twitterers, much less actually follows them. This point was emphasized when several tweople recommended me for #followfriday most of whom were not even following me, WTF?

So @OriginalOG invented #PhotoFollows. #PhotoFollows is basically a personal and thoughtful recommendation as opposed to a list that of reccomendations that no one will read. In order to participate in #PhotoFollows one must simply be creative and make a sign with the @ of the tweep they're reccommmending, take a picture of the sign and tweet it with the hash tag #PhotoFollows. Simple enough?

Try it. Be creative. The sky is the limit.

Also follow @OriginalOG as well as my #PhotoFollow pick @parksdesign

#followfriday for your consideration

It has come to my attention, that #followfriday is annoying to some folks. Sorry @salena and @samfrosty. So instead of spamming the twitter feed of those without thousands of followers I'm just going to compose a list and BLOG it. Here is a list of Tewople for you to consider. this list is in no particular order and consists of Tweople that helped me hit 2000 followers last week. If I left you out I apologize, but chances are you're not reading this anyway! ...and once again #IMJUSTSAYIN


No tweeps were hurt or injured in the composing of this list however minutes prior I was unfollowed by 5 twits because I posted #followfriday tweets.
