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?
While you’re here, join over 200 others and follow us.

@svandyke (shameless plug)
oh and how could I forget
& @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:
It’s a list of the “top 50 twitter channels” in Knoxville.
@Shawn: Great list! You covered just about everyone I would have mentioned.
@Alex Lavidge: Thanks for the suggestion and the link. I’ll think about a proper hashtag and how we could implement.
My personal favorite is @cathymccaughan
Interesting that Twitterholic gives different results if you ,TN.
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. 🙂
