As promised, and as a continuation of my Follower Roundup 2012, I bring you my Twitter Followers! Most of these folks I've met being involved in WEGO Health's regularly scheduled Health Activist Tweetchats, held every Tuesday, 3p EST (1p Mountain time). But some of these folks found me on their own! I'm just learning Twitter, and I think I need to pick up one of those "...For Dummies" books. But I'm having fun so far! Thank you to my Twitter followers for such a lovely welcome!
Note: I've excluded some followers that look to be commercial sites for advertising only. If you feel that you have mistakenly been excluded for that reason, please contact me and I'll add you back in!
