Follow Search Engine Watch on Twitter

It's #followfriday on Twitter, that day when you spam your followers with lists of names you drop to impress them...or something like that. In theory, the idea is good: share some of your favorite Twitterers with your followers, assuming they'll like what they have to say too. In practice, it can be overused and worthless.

I'm guilty of doing it myself today on the official SEW Twitter account (@sewatch), which made me realize it would be more useful to blog about all the SEW folks who are active on Twitter, broken down by category.
