Top Twitter People in Denver & Colorado
Everyone is posting their first-tweet and who-followed-them-first in celebration of Twitter’s 8th birthday. Mine was a very benign “what is this thing about” type of comment in 2007, mainly to follow all the people I knew in Denver who had joined. All these years later I have found so many real (and imaginary) friends via Twitter, here in Colorado and around the world.
This is a collection of the people I love to follow on Twitter from Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs… and all over our great state – plus a tweet that gives a taste (IMHO, of course) of what their feed is like. Prepare for a very eclectic list from music to media, funny people to tech, social media, and basically everything under the sun.
Warning. Some are NSFW and some are mommy bloggers.
