I may not be discriminating, but I do have excellent taste!

This is by no means an all-inclusive list of all of the wonderful people I know on twitter.

Here is the shortened link to this page:

The entire list is posted on twitter.

Have a wonderful week!


January 23, 2010

When I started writing this newsletter about twitter, I asked Russ, “How do I make sure that I don’t sound like a fourteen year old kid with too much time on her hands?”

I was still a bit wrapped up in the stereotypes about twitter.  Truth be told, I have completely fallen in love with the communication medium that is twitter.  I started tweeting in May 2009 at the recommendation of one of my two awesome brothers, and once I got my feet under me, really started enjoying it.

I have met veterinarians across the country and around the world.  I have met friends I may never have otherwise.  I have gathered a group of pet experts in one list and sometimes just watch them converse when I need to learn more about behavior and pets.  And if I have a question, everyone gathers to help me find the answer.  I LOVE twitter.  The only thing I love more than twitter is the great group of people I have met there.

I wanted a place to gather some of my favorite tweeters, so that when “Follow Friday” comes around, I am not overwhelming friends who don’t need their twitter stream taken over by the incredible list of awesome people I would recommend following.

If you have not yet been snagged by twitter, I hope you stick around the Riley and James Website for the actual pet information.  (“She’s strange, but she does have some good guinea pig information, I guess.”)  And if you, like me, have found twitter to be fun, informative, and a valid way to communicate with friends new and old, stop back by this post this coming Friday and every Friday.  You will love these guys.

    This list is fabulous, Dr. Finch! I’d love to get included in this list as @AmandaBrownDVM!

  2. admin says:

    Thanks Doctor! There you are! I DID try to link you here, but I had the DVM off your twitter name! #howcouldi

  3. Sal says:

    Thanks for the shout out @svilardo2 :) Hope to join the ranks of Vets like you soon enough. Until then, I just plan on lapping up your material – may make vet school easier…or harder (haven’t figured that one out yet) ;)

  4. Mary Haight says:

    What can I say? This is Brilliant! Honored to make the list. Love your style:)

  5. Subrato Paul says:

    Thanks for including me. It’s a beautiful way to extend Follow Friday from twitter (microblog) to blog.But if I am to follow your friends, it would be tedious. So, I would request you to make a list on twitter as well. I would then love to follow all your friends, if I am not already.Oh! yes belated Happy Birthday wish to your brother.Thanks for your efforts.

  6. admin says:

    Thanks Sal! And thank you Mary! That is so nice of you! I love getting to talk to you on twitter!:)

  7. admin says:

    Everyone’s name is linked to their twitter account. Dunno if that will make it easier to follow them. Let me know! I would not mind putting the list on twitter as well. And names in the comment section are linked to the website of your choosing if you have approved it! Hope that makes it more fun. It has been a really fun project from this end!

    Dr. Finch – wow, what a great list you’ve taken time to put together. Dusty, Hurley, and I are honored to be listed amongst your many friends. Thanks so much. I will be checking out some of the people that I am unfamiliar with.

  12. admin says:

    Hey thanks! Of course you are there! : )

  13. Kurt Schmitt says:

    Thank you so much for including @catloversonly in your list! This list is a great idea. Oh, and thank you for helping animals and their people!
