Its been just about two months since I last updated the list of people Im following on Twitter. I thought today might be a good day to give a brief update. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll try to catch “all the way” up to who I’m following. In case you missed the earlier posts:
So, without further adieu, here are the people I have followed since my last post.
@CNBC: CNBC is a cable television business news channel. They are dedicated to covering business headlines and financial markets.
@nycole_turmel: Since the passing of Jack Layton, Turmel has filled in as the interim leader of the NDP. Shortly, the NDP will pick their leader.
@Dahlialithwick: Dahlia is a Canadian (eh?) and mostly tweets about issues regarding law and the court system.
@Number10gov: This is the account of the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron. I’m not sure, but I think the account will stay with the Prime Minister’s office, regardless of party.
@wordspy: “Word Spy is devoted to ‘lexpionage,’ the sleuthing of new words and phrases.”
@Steele_Michael: Michael Steele is a former RNC Chairman. He is a contributor to MSNBC (often representing the conservative viewpoint).
@anamariecox: She is currently a Washington correspondent for GQ and often has interesting commentary on the political debates.
@fourthofjulie: Julie is one of my friends from SVSU. She currently works for the American Red Cross.
@DalaiLama: The Dalai Lama is the most influential figure in Tibetan Buddhism. His “reign” has lasted over 60 years!
@MaddowApp: This twitter account is aimed at iPad users, but during “The Rachel Maddow Show,” it often tweets links to articles of which Maddow is referring.
@joestiglitz: Stiglitz won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2001 and is a very well respected academic.
@gatesfoundation: From the Twitter account: “We work to help all people lead healthy, productive lives, focused on health, poverty, and opportunity.”
@BillGates: Bill Gates doesn’t tweet very often, but when he does, he often, “shares cool things he’s learning.”
@jack_welch: Jack Welch is one of the preeminent businessmen of our time. It’s great to be able to follow his commentary via Twitter.
@ModeledBehavior: This is the Twitter account for a blog and there are often tweets about the economy, business, and finance.
@Humblebrag: This account retweets Humblebrags. As is made clear on their about statement, “Humblebrags are different from brags.”
@LaMonicaBuzz: Paul La Monica tweets — often — about stocks (what’s up, what’s down) and the economy. He’s quite a barometer for the market.
@Nouriel: Roubini is a rather famous economist. In fact, he predicted the collapse of the US housing market and the worldwide recession.
@GOOD: “GOOD is the global association of individuals, businesses, and nonprofits powering what works.”
As I said earlier in this post, I’ll do my best to catch up to the updated list of who I’m following in the next couple of weeks. As always, if there’s someone you think I might like to follow, leave me a comment, send me an email, or tweet me.
