Yesterday, I noticed a significant — and seemingly out of the blue — spike of new twitter followers. So, I did a little digging and discovered I’d been listed as “The Top 100 Theatre Tweeters You Must Follow on Twitter – 2011 Edition.”
I’m completely surprised and honored to be listed among notable theatre tweeters such as @BettyBuckley, @davidhenryhwang, @hesherman and @nytimestheater. I’m also pleased to join my friends @steveonbroadway, @gratuitousv and @kevinddaly. Sure, the list is one person’s opinion (@BroadwayGirlNYC), but it’s nice to be recognized.
So, if you’re on twitter and we’re not following each other, let’s change that!
I’d also like to recommend these Chicago theatre tweeters (I’m only including twitter accounts linked to actual people rather than twitter accounts associated with Chicago theatre companies):
