A jolly little cartoon just popped up in my Twitter feed (thanks @lewsisshields) making an entertaining point about the Follow Friday phenomenon- namely that nobody ever follows the people suggested in such tweets. But actually I think this kind of misses how Follow Friday is more frequently used today.

Some telecoms examples for today's Follow Friday blog post. Enjoy…
@guyatcarphone – Among generally worthwhile tweets, there are also interesting updates on cellular reception as the network inevitably collapses around the country. A good idea and worth having on the roster just in case. Example Tweet:
Carphone Warehouse customer service alert: Customers in the DG12 postal code area may currently be experiencing loss of GSM and GPRS service
@sevendotzero – Jonathan Jensen, http://www.sevendotzero.com/ The man knows about mobile things. Bit supporter of .tel and worth quizzing on the subject. Tends to be at the forefront of breaking news and speaking to the people involved. Example Tweet:
@mobileIP – Another example of a Twitter account accompanied by a great blog, "A Look Inside the Cloud". Really interesting and informed insight into the Telecoms market, goes way beyond the superficial and teaches amateurs like me a thing or two. It's a hidden gem and based on the content, should be on more peoples' radar. Example Tweet:
OFCOM releases first ever UK 3G coverage map … great news if you're a sailor, less so if you're from Norfolk!http://tinyurl.com/md8g9t

A sprinkling of favourites for my first official Follow Friday blog post. Enjoy…
In movies most aliens never wear clothes or shoes. Why do we think they will evolve to inter-space travel and yet remain naked?4:14 PM Sep 2nd from web
@brokenbottleboy – Having spent a stolen weekend in Reading with this chap, I can attest that he “knows things”. Expect a regular stream of solid tech content and pay a visit to his tumblr blog for the best use I’ve ever seen of the platform.
