#FF: Ten People You Need to Follow on Twitter

There are so many lists with hundreds of great twitter accounts you should follow, including our own Librarians in Ireland List (164 members & rising!). But with Twitter - especially for infrequent users - less can be more. Following a small handful of key people who consistently tweet relevant, high quality content, and keep up-to-date so you don't have to, can be very valuable, low-maintenance CPD.

#FF is Follow Friday, so I have compiled a list of my top ten LIS-related tweeters (& their bios to give you an idea of what they tweet about), but these are pretty much based on my own interests. So if you are interested in scholarly communications, research, service design and delivery, learning, higher education or social media they are well worth following. That said, several tweet about more general LIS issues also.
