Birds of a feather flock together. But how do you find your Twitter flock?
I've found a few ways that have helped me to find others in Twitterland who share my interests:
1. Visit the profiles of people you already follow. Chances are they are following people -- and have followers -- you have things in common with also.
2. Just Tweet It! This is a website I just found and it's great! It has categories of interests, like Writers, Comedy/Humor, Family, Financial, etc. Just click on a category and a list of Twitter peeps appear for you to follow. You can also fill out a form and have your Twitter profile added under your chosen categories so others can find and follow you.
3. Look at the lists of those you already follow. (To learn more about lists, read last week's post.) Usually their lists are also full of people who you'd be interested in following.
4. Twubble -- Although I haven't tried this site out yet, it looks interesting. You type in your Twitter username and password and it searches your friend graph and suggests people for you to follow.
5. Follow Friday (#followfriday or #FF) -- If you've been on Twitter very long, you're probably familiar with Follow Friday. Every Friday, Tweeps play a game where they recommend others to follow. Be sure to include one of the above hashtags. Your tweet might look like this: "Some great #FF: @juliealoe @shellthings @UnexpectedBliss @Jeanwise @Family_Manager." (Those really are great Tweeps to follow, by the way!)
Hope that's helpful in finding your Tweeps!
