DorobekInsider: Twitter #followfriday — the @fednewsradio edition

leave a comment »

For the Tweetdom, there is something known as Follow Friday — #followfriday in Twitter hash tag terms.

(One of the most challenging parts of Twitter is building your network of people who are worth following — and who will follow you. The #followfriday helps because, if you find somebody interesting, they might follow interesting people. To further build your network, I’d recommend the GovTwit directory at, which does a great job of rounding up the government tweeters.)

Not wanting to recreate the GovTwit directory, here is a #followfriday of people at Federal News Radio 1500 AM and our sister station, WTOP 103.5 FM.
