It may seem a bit obvious to you, but I amazed at how many great people I find on Twitter when I follow the live tweets from big events like #bwe09, the Blog World Expo in Las Vegas that kicked off this morning.
It’s an easy practice for Twitter users of all skill levels. Just perform a Twitter Search for the hashtag (#bwe09) and hold on for dear life. My best guess is that there are over 150 new tweets each minute for this hashtag and trying to sift through all of them is virtually impossible. But that’s ok. There is a wealth of information in this pool of tweets and it seems almost too easy to find interesting voices with every refresh of the screen.
So don’t be shy. Do the search and start following the people that you find interesting. You will learn new things, share ideas with others that share your passions and have fun doing it.
