Twitter Follow Friday (without duplication)

If you are new to Twitter, you may scratch your head with all of the #followfriday tweets. This is an organic tradition where you list the people that you enjoy following and want to share with others.

You can track everyone’s suggestions, by using this Twitter search. In addition, you can make the search more sophisticated with advanced search.

For example, in this search, I am looking for all suggestions in Knoxville.

More importantly, whenever I want to make #followfriday suggestions, I often forget if I have suggested someone before. SO, I run this simple search before tapping out my tweet:<TWITTERID>

Twitter Follow Friday History

You can use this search by simply replacing <TWITTERID> in the above URL with your own twitter id.

Some Twitter traditions (and yes I avoided twitteritions) are dull, but I enjoy this one as a compliment to the people that you follow. Also, you can use the suggestions to pick up interesting reads.
