        @patdryburgh It took me awhile to build up my follower list. I started by following the people I liked having conversations with, and then added the people they were talking to. As I got to know them more, they made more suggestions of people to follow.

          @patdryburgh unlike twitter, I have chosen a lot more random people on here.

              @patdryburgh I don't know if @duerig told you about it, but check out #MondayNightDanceParty next Monday. It's put on by @33mhz, @jdscolam, @emilyv23 and others. It's a very good time.

                  @patdryburgh hell yeah. The idea is you go to mndp.tv and request a YouTube, Vimeo, or Soundcloud song. Then when the party starts the queue of songs plays in an embedded video player that everyone watches in realtime. The while chatting in a chat room.

                        @patrickrhone @patdryburgh which brings up the essential question: should I grow a beard?

                          @davmendels @patrickrhone @patdryburgh beards are cooler than mustaches. Pirates grow beards. ... Wait what ?

                            @daylon @patrickrhone @patdryburgh I’m thinking about growth lengths as well: Jobsian < Rhonian < Dryburghian < Dalrymplian < Gandalfian... (one beard to rule them all…)

                              @patdryburgh The automated accounts @topposts and @mmmercury are worth a follow to see occasional posts from a variety of people. Only issue I’ve noticed with them so far are reposts of non-English posts.

                                  @patdryburgh as many followers? In one day? WHO are you? :D

                                    @patdryburgh Welcome! When @danj tagged me here I just hopped on and followed the many people in this thread that I didn't know yet. I'm way more follow-liberal here, because it usually leads to fun discussion. People tend to follow back more, too. Enjoy!

                                      @patdryburgh @danj I'll throw down some follow suggestions too if you like 'em, but I think the simplest path is following people you like the sound of in Global, then following some of their followers. :) OK, back to my regularly scheduled insomnia now!

                                        @patdryburgh Welcome, Pat! :) While I can’t actually take any credit for #MNDP, it’s a good time indeed. :) Hope to see you there sometime! @rygood @duerig @33mhz @jdscolam
