This will be a weekly feature that's really just an expansion on the Follow Friday meme that's popular on Twitter and happens um ... every Friday. I hope that expanding my weekly picks to a full blog post like this one will provide you a bit more insight as to why you should follow the folks I suggest here. At any rate, it's better than just dropping you a list of usernames. So, without further ado, here's who I'm following today. You should too.

This is a twofer. These are actually automated Twitter accounts ... but thats OK! I like some automated twitter accounts when they are kicking out regular useful information, and reminders. The way KDHX has done this is a good example of how organizations can do it right. The main function of these Twitter feeds is to remind you of news, events and when programs are playing on our own beloved, truly independent community radio station. KDHX
