Folks to follow in 2010

Twitter keeps growing in popularity – Since we last checked the number of followers for @IABC in connecting with IABC colleagues from around the world, that account alone has seen a tripling in followership.

Since then a new concept called Twitter Lists has also been introduced and @IABC is duly listed on 188 of those. Great way to find interesting people and chapters to follow.

Just in case you’d rather not dig through the thousands, we’ve compiled a small quick list of our own for you. It has the key IABC members we think you might benefit from following in 2010 (in no particular order):

@dmarkschumannMark Schumann – 2010 Chair of IABC

@ezrielEzri Carlebach – 2010 Gold Quill Awards chair

@janglesNeville Hobson – past IABC Europe regional director and prominent blogger

@shelShel Holtz – IABC Fellow and prominent blogger

@crescenzoSteve Crescenzo – frequent and outspoken IABC conference speaker

@shonaliShonali Burke – IABC Washington president

@leehopkinsLee Hopkins – at-large in Australia

@xcultureSilvia Cambie – former IABC Europe & Middle East board

@mklein818Mike Klein – past IABC Europe & Middle East board

Not to mention our own Europe & Middle East board: @walkercomms @simply_marc @rob_briggs @audreyscarff @allanjenkins @michaelambjorn

  2. Sniff, looks like I’m forgotten already. But if anyone wants to find me on Twitter, I’m still @barb_g.

    Barb Gibson, ABC

    Past Chair of IABC (it was only last year!)

    P.S. I’m really happy to see so many IABCers now so active on Twitter.

  3. Don’t forget:

    Danny DeVriendt (@dannydevriendt) of Porter Novelli in Belgium: all round comms tweets with a great sense of humour.

    And recently arrived on twitter: Caroline Sapriel’s crisis commuications company, @Csacrisiscom, with valuable reports and information for those interested in the subject.
