Hi. My name is Adam.

Suggested list of twitter users to follow

Posted in daily news, Eastern Iowa, Iowa City, social media, social networking, twitter by adambsullivan on December 2, 2009

I’ve organized my favorite twitter users into my primary niches so you can easily determine which ones would be helpful for you to follow.

Iowa City:
@DrDaily is The Daily Iowan’s personable web presence. He’s modeled after The Chicago Tribune’s @ColonelTribune. (Full disclosure: I’m Dr. Daily’s primary muse).
@bergus is one of my primary web/journalism mentors. In addition to being a great media and food critic, Nick offers lots of fun commentary about Eastern Iowa.
@thebstiles is, without exaggeration, probably the very best Hawkeye football reporter in the nation right now.
@hidama and @sebhar are delightfully social and exceedingly friendly…usually.
@seanathompson is an IC native, UI employee, runner, Hawkeye sports fan, and all around good guy. Sean knows what’s going on; he’s very involved in the community.

Journalism nerds:
@bergus gets double-mentioned. He’s one of my primary web/journalism mentors. In addition to being a great media and food critic, Nick offers lots of fun commentary about Eastern Iowa.
@stevebuttry is The Gazette’s 3C’s innovation coach. In addition to “getting” how communication works, Steve touches on the business side of the news business.
@mashable is seldom more than a feed of headlines from Mashable, but it still offers useful info on social networking and how it pertains to news.
@ryansholin is the Director of News Innovation at Publish2. He knows a lot about journalism innovation, but isn’t out of touch with regular people like most newsies who know as much as he does. Ryan is also very accessible; he’s responded to my tweets more than once.
@10000words does a great job of aggregating lots of the hot topics in the journalism discussion.
@NYT_JenPreston is The New York Time’s Social-Media Editor. She doesn’t have all the answers, but she does a decent job of collaborating/discussing with other twitter users.

    I'm "delightfully social" and loquacious.
