My Twitter Props and Follow Friday Suggestions- Part 1

Each week on Twitter, I recommend some photographers I follow and post their links.

Some of these folks are good friends I actually know, some are Twitter friends, and some are just cool photographers that have earned my respect.

Recently, Twitter banned my account due to “spamming a trending topic with unrelated links.” Here’s the post I wrote about it in: Wondering About My Lack of Tweets?

In a nutshell, when I do a Follow Friday suggestion it’s in this format:

#FF @Tweeter New England photographer based in New Bedofrd Mass, Bobby Jones: http://bit.ly/1234FGHJ

Something more substantial that lets people know why I follow them. A link to their portfolio and small description of who they are.

So, rather than fill my stream with suggestions, here are some great people.
