Friday Favorites–blogroll, our Tweeps

If we take the term “blogroll” more loosely to mean the organizations and people we interact with through digital community, then the people whose work on Twitter we link to, and who link to us, are very significant members of that community.

Maybe more clear:  Instead of just keeping track of blogs we read and check regularly, our digital communities include people whose tweets we send along and who retweet our stuff. (Can you tell it’s been a long week?)

Here’s a partial list, with Twitter handle and other information as readily available, is who we have been communicating with this week.  It’s been a great week, with lively exchanges, and we thank all of these folks for the interactions!
