50 WordPress People to Follow on Twitter for News, Tips and Tutorials

Since it’s Twitter’s traditional #FollowFriday, we thought we’d jump in on it with some suggestions of our own. Want to stay more up to the minute with WordPress but not sure who to follow? Here is a solid list of excellent people and blogs who regularly tweet about WordPress. For your convenience, we also have the list available in our Twitter account, if you want to follow the whole lot: http://twitter.com/wpmuorg/wordpress/

Please note that this isn’t a top 50 list and it by no means includes everyone. It’s simply a selection of a few we think you’ll appreciate. The list is clickable and each person comes with a recent WordPress tweet. Grab a cup of coffee and find some fun people to follow!
