Tweeps Tuesday, vol. 3

Early yesterday afternoon I suddenly began to get notification after notification of new followers on Twitter and my blog's Facebook fan page. And I didn't recognize any of the names. I wasn't quite sure what was going on until I saw this tweet:

I clicked the link and saw that I had been featured in a Clutch magazine article on blogs by black women that don't get the attention they deserve. And the result was, well, a lot of attention -- a spike in readership and new Twitter followers and Facebook fans. 

So if you're new here, welcome!

Today is Tuesday which means it's time for me to tell you about some of the folks I follow on Twitter. 

This is the Twitter account of Evette Dionne, who wrote the Clutch article. I'm sure glad I follow her because otherwise I may have missed her post. But I'm glad I follow her also because she frequently tweets out great articles on journalism and feminism, my two favorite -isms of all.

Mariam is a friend of mine from Louisville, but I'd follow her on Twitter even if we'd never met. She's a thoughtful and talented writer and feminist and she blogs at Mariam was also featured in the Clutch article and as Evette Dionne writes, "Redbone Afropuff and Black GRITS is a celebration of black women. The blog explores faith, feminism and all-things Southern..."

I started following Kristin during the last Blog Brunch Twitter chat when I noticed that all the tweets I was retweeting and copying down were from her. Kristin's blog is all about "storytelling with pictures, paper and prose." She's currently offering a Find Your Voice online workshop to help other people tell their stories too. 

Tell me about the people you follow on Twitter and why they're your tweeps.
