Random People I am Following on Twitter and Why

  • Oct 1, 2009

When you've been on Twitter a while (I joined on April 27, 2007), you accumulate some interesting folks on your friend's list over time. Here is a random sample of 10 Tweeters that I have picked up over the last 2+ years.
now following
Albert T. Wong (alberttwong)
Albert T. Wong (alberttwong) on Twitter
Albert and I had a brief business engagement when he was assisting my previous company architect a solution using IBM WebSphere products. He is an avid Yelper and has great Sacramento restaurant reviews. I just wish he would come over to Lunch.com to review everything else!

Chad Markley (cmarkley)
Chad Markley (cmarkley) on Twitter
When you don't have many friends, sometimes you have to expand your circle to include friends of your relatives. Chad is a friend of my brother who I followed after seeing another friend of my brother follow him (see #5). Recently, Chad's wife shared a very challenging story and I found out about it through his feed. You can find this remarkable story here.

John Resig (jeresig)
John Resig (jeresig) on Twitter
John is the founder, I believe, of the JQuery JavaScript library. Although we don't currently use this library, I always appreciate John's insights on web programming. He has a valuable blog you can follow by following him on Twitter.
now following
kogibbq (kogibbq) on Twitter
I have yet to enjoy some Kogi Korean tacos, but I follow them on Twittero in hopes that they will one day make it out to Hawthorne and I can partake of this unique delicacy that I have heard so much about.
now following
MatthewHR1 (MatthewHR1) on Twitter
Matt is another "borrowed friend" from my brother, but I have actually met him now and consider him my friend as well. When he is not busy caring for my nieces, he puts some great theological content up on his blog which you can occasionally find out about here.
now following
Hammer (MCHammer)
MCHammer (Twitter Feed)
You can't touch this! Hammer is the first celebrity I followed. How can you resist getting personal insights from a real, famous person? Beware of getting his tweets sent to your phone, though, especially if you don't have unlimited texting!
now following
Sam Talbert (samtalbert)
Pastor Sam married Cheryl and I almost 20 years ago. We lost touch after that, but recently were reconnected on Twitter. Now with each tweet, I am reminded of his marriage sermon on Proverbs 3:4-12.
now following
Jon Talbert (JonTalbert)
Jon Talbert (JonTalbert) on Twitter
Jon and I spent the day at Magic Mountain together while in Jr. High camp with his dad (see #7). We didn't see much of each other after that until our paths crossed at Talbot seminary. I haven't seen him since those days, but now I know what and where he eats on an almost daily basis. :-)
now following
I will be REAL honest here. I don't understand many of SHAQ's tweets. But I didn't understand many of his moves with the Lakers either. And I am not quite sure I understand why I am following him. I guess it is because of the simple reason that I can.
now following
Wally Punsapy (yahooza)
Wally Punsapy (yahooza) on Twitter
Wally and I worked together about 8 years ago. He is a great front-end developer and an all-around great guy. I really want to see his Twitter list of random people he is following!

What did you think of this list?
