tod on twitter

Hi people. I finally got around to creating a TOD members list on Twitter – you can find it here

It includes all the TOD people who added their name to the ‘Team Up On Twitter’ page (here – there’s also a permanent link to the page in the right sidebar) and lots of other good people worth following – eg official White House accounts, Bob Cesca, Steve Benen, What Is Working, Pragmatic Obots, etc. I’ll add more accounts to the list when I think of them.

So, if you would like to follow the list just, well, click ‘follow this list’.

For those not yet familiar with the inner-workings of Twitter (err, including me), the list will allow you to follow all the tweets from people here and the other accounts I mentioned, all in the one Twitter feed.

Again, if you would like to be added to the list, just leave your Twitter name on the ‘Team Up On Twitter’ page.

Thanks everyone 😉
