Which Knoxvillians Should You Follow on Twitter?

twitter-shirt

If you haven’t heard of Twitter in the past couple of weeks it’s safe to say you’ve been living under a rock. Keep your hands down – we’re not going to explain it.

The “real-time short messaging service” Web site is experiencing unprecedented growth – up 1,382% to be exact! According to Twitterholic.com, some 756 Twitter users call Knoxville home. We’d bet it’s probably more than that.

For those that are Twitterers, which Knoxvillians would you recommend following?

    & @overground … :)

    Also, knoxify.com should could try to start a hashtag trend … kind of like how we have #followfriday today, if there was something for just knoxville folks in particular that’d be cool.

    By the way, check out:
