Which Knoxvillians Should You Follow on Twitter?


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, 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?

    Aside from the Knoxville Twitterers listed here already (a few which are new to me), I also follow:

    @boriqua (yours truly)
    @garywrites (not 100% sure he’s in Knoxville, but he’s close enough)

    And there are apparently still hundreds more here in K-Town to discover. :)
