For the people I know on Twitter, I put a note beside their name as to what they are about or why you should follow them. I hope this list proves to be helpful the next time one of your friends thinks no one locally is Tweetin’.
If I’ve some how missed you on the list throw your name in the comments or Tweet me, @JephMaystruck

Brooke, please don’t be mad! PS: She has the coolest glasses I’ve ever seen, ever.
