A huge thank you to Micah Baldwin for implementing his idea of Follow Friday. Totally genius, gold star! Follow Friday has become a tradition that every Friday people post recommendations of people they think you should follow.

My Follow Friday lists were becoming so long that I decided I should create a post that focuses on just a few people you should follow everyday.

From bloggers, designers and social media gurus to entrepreneurs, I am proud and excited to introduce you to some of my favorite tweeters.
