Who To Follow On Twitter

twitter-logo.pngHaving a great Twitter network can lead to great things. Assuming that social media isn’t a giant fad, that is. (We assume so! But sometimes we wonder.)

Anyway, if you’re looking to inject some media class into your followed, try AdAge’s list of 25 Media People You Should Follow and 25 More Media People You Should Follow.

Who made the list? Not li’l ol’ us, sadly, but:

Jason Calacanis (@JasonCalacanis), founder of Weblogs, TechCrunch50 and Maholo[sic]

Peter Kafka (@pkafka), Media Memo blogger at All Things Digital

Nieman Lab (@NiemanLab), The Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard — “Trying to figure out the future of news.”

David Berkowitz (@dberkowitz), emerging-media director at 360i

And many (46, to be exact) more.

If that doesn’t satiate your Twitterlust, don’t forget about Muck Rack, which aggregates tweets from journalists, and ExecTweets’ Media section, which compiles messages from executives in our industries. (The weird thing is ExecTweets leaves it up to the reader to figure out WHO THE HECK THESE PEOPLE ARE.)

Now, whether you can successfully keep tabs on all these folks is another question. And the real question is, how do you get them to follow you back— assuming that’s the ultimate goal?
