The Twit List

Okay, I've had it. It's too hard to find everyone's user-id on Twitter. So I'm asking for your help.

I'm going to turn this post into a list of Twitter users, their names (or aliases), and a link to their blog or website (if applicable).

If you'd like to be included, please comment on this post, and I'll do my best to keep the list updated.

Rule one: No expectations that anyone will follow anyone or attempt to keep up. There is no expectation that you'll add me or anyone else to your follow list. This is just a list for cross-referencing bloggers with twitter user-ids, not a ketubah (marriage contract).

The beauty of Twitter, as far as I can see it, is that the messages are short and temporary. It's not e-mail, it's not a commitment. Some people follow lots of people; some almost none. People are followed for a bit, dropped, added back again, etc. with no hard feelings.

Rule two: While I reserve the right not to link to offensive, pornographic, hateful, or purely SPAM blogs, at my sole discretion, this list isn't my endorsement of any of the blogs or twitterers, or any of the content they contain.

Rule three: I won't put you on this list, unless you ask me to do so. If you want in, you have to give permission by commenting below. (Some people don't want everyone to know they're twittering, and I'm not able to keep track of who they are.)

If you want to be removed from this list, please send me a private e-mail.

Rule four: Some of the twitter users on this list may have set their updates to "protected" status. If you want to communicate with them, that is between the two of you.

I'll admit to having joined Twitter, because I was told to, but I still have no clue how to use it. I'm looking forward to reading your last post just to figure it out one day when I have time! :P

Ezzie,

First, you sign up and start following a few people. Then, when you go to http://twitter.com/your-username, you'll see the recent "tweets" of those people, sorted by most recent.

For people to see your "tweets" in their streams, they first must be following you. But, in order to do that, they have to know your twitterid.

Some people are following *thousands* of others. I doubt that means they read even 1/10th of the messages. But that's okay, because the nature of Twitter is that it's light and commitment-free. Nobody is expected to read anyone's every tweet.

It's light and temporary (though archived) and more like a wave across a crowded room than an intense conversation.

Even if you aren't twittering now, I'd like to put your userid on this list (if you want me to) so we can find you. That way, if/when you ever decide to tweet something, it will show up in the stream of tweets that those who are set up to follow you get to see.

So far, finding the twitterid of the bloggers and commenters I like has been the hardest part. That's why I'm cheating and asking for everyone to help me compile this list!
