The Twitter 10: September 2011

The Twitter 10: September 2011

Our ten favourite articles that we tweeted in the past month.

This month features: @Rickmereki, @foxnomad, @koangirl, @wanderlass, @nakedsushi, @chickybus, @alphadesigner, @JohnnyVagabond, @travelsofadam, @manonthelam1

We have been doing this feature for over a year now and have long noticed that often the same names crop up time and time again. This is not necessarily a bad thing. Often it is a consequence of consistent good writing and ideas that particularly appeal to us.

But there must be plenty of excellent writing that we don’t see because we do not subscribe to the appropriate RSS feeds or are not following the author on Twitter.

So, from now on we are opening up the Twitter 10 to submissions. To be included please submit to the comments below an article posted to a blog or website in the month of September. I’ll tweet each article to our followers and in the beginning of next month add my ten favourite articles to October’s Twitter 10.
