Recommended Minneapolis Twitter Users

Ed Kohler ranks Minneapolis Twitter users by “interestingness” using his patent-pending “F/U” algorhythm.

But focusing on your own rankings is mostly an effort in ego surfing. I suggest you use these lists to find people interesting to you to follow in Minneapolis, and more importantly, use Twitter to form REAL relationships.

I’ve said it 100 times, I know, but Twitter has helped me make more real-life friendships in the Twin Cities than Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn combined.

Oh, and I’m @perfectporridge if we aren’t already friends. :)

    I’m #133 on Ed’s list. Surprised I am on there at all, really!

    I’m also finding Twitter to be as useful, if not more so, than Facebook/LinkedIn, etc.

    It’s now my goal to make one of those lists, ha…

    That’s the truth.

    Though this list is misleading for several reasons, see DeRusha’s comments, it’s a decent starting point.

    Also, the search tool itself is flawed. e.g. St.Paul shows up different from St.Paul Mn.

    A more useful search may be on Minnesota or Mn because of the various ways people enter where they are from; such as "Mpls Mn" which wouldn’t have showed up in that search.

    I just tested it out and I’m #8 for Saint Paul Twitter Elite, but I don’t show up at all for St.Paul.

    Ohhhh…you are assuming Saint Paul counts.

    Yeah, I had mine as "Twin Cities, MN" and I don’t even think that’s an option.

    Ha!

    St.Paul counts. Sure, it has to use it’s fingers and toes to get to 20 .. .
