Follow Fridays on twitter is getting a little crowded with people recommending in bulks without any reason why one should follow them. I did a post about how to do a proper follow friday on twitter. Which taught people about doing follow fridays the right way. Of course one can follow that method but the reason for this post is about turning follow friday into smiles while getting traffic and retweets. Its the four in one kind of post that you can use every friday.

When you recommend someone on twitter, it makes people feel good. Problem is, it is getting too crowded. My solution is to recommend great twitterers on blog instead. It solves the problem and stands out more than normal follow friday tweets. It gets out of the 140 limit characters as well.

So here are 10 people that you should follow today. I will add more than 10 to follow in the future because there are too many great people that I want to recommend. If you want to follow more you can follow them directly from my twitter list http://twitter.com/AskAaronLee/interesting

With over 117,000 Twitter followers and over 70,000 RTs; Aaron is no stranger to Twitter success. He is a wonderful soul and makes Twitter fun for me. What I have learned from Aaron is how to use Twitter lists to find great content. I didn’t use Twitter lists to their full advantage until Aaron took the time to teach me this. When someone you know and respect on Twitter has created a list of people that tweet great content, it is a good idea to follow that list.

You don’t have to follow each individual person, just the list. Then, on the web version of Twitter, just click on that list at any time to have a full filtered screen of tweets to retweet that have great content. It is a simple and brilliant way to find great content to tweet. Aaron, known for his big heart, says the best part of this process isn’t finding the great content, but the sharing through RTs.</blockquote>
