Must Follow Green Twitter Feeds

Twitter logo

The venerable HuffPo just posted a list of what they call the "Best Green Twitter Feeds."  It’s an okay list, but when you name streams like @Sprig (13 total updates and nothing in 7 days), @globalwarming (sporadic tweets with nothing in 7 days), and @greennews (sporadic tweets and nothing in 12 days), it’s tough to take the list seriously.  No offense Sprig, GlobalWarming, and GreenNews.  HuffPo’s list includes some stalwarts, don’t get me wrong, but when you assume the title of "Best," you have to bring it.  You have to name more than sixteen or seventeen Twitter* feeds.  Right?

Anyway, here’s my list (not a "best" list, just a list) of environmental and green related twitter folks that you might be interested in following.  To clear the air, we’re @jetsongreen.  Some of the following are no different than straight blog feeds.  Some are mixed blog feeds with conversation.  Others are pure conversation. 

Who did I miss?  This list is by no means complete, but feel free to right click and cherry pick to your heart’s content.  Hopefully you’ll find some interesting green folks and make something good happen. 

*If you have no idea what Twitter is, it’s a free micro-blogging and quasi-social networking site where people can say anything and everything in under 140 characters.  You can follow a twitter stream, send direct messages, favorite various tweets, and even block people.  It’s not a perfect system by any means — I haven’t been able to read replies in about a week, but it’s pretty fun.

    Thanks for putting me with such great company, Preston! Next is the great green Tweet-up…

  • http://www.jetsongreen.com Preston

    I’ve added some of you newbies to the list, but don’t make me look bad. If you go dark, I’ll be so ticked … :)

      Preston, Just went through the list to follow people. Can’t believe how many green building folks are out there that I didn’t know about. Thx again.

  • http://greenoptions.com David

    thanks for calling huffpo out on that one, although I wouldn’t say I’m teh best green twitterer either :)

    • http://www.jetsongreen.com Preston

      But the sporadic tweet is okay if it’s from a power green geek, right? That’s why you’re on the list.

      How’s the blog empire? I saw your tweet on the nerdfighter king — I love what John and Hank are doing. We should catch up at one of these fall events …

  • http://www.thesmartmama.com/bg Jennifer

    Great list – can I add myself? My blog is http://www.thesmartmama.com and I tweet at http://www.twitter.com/thesmartmama I’m more about going non toxic, but there’s a lot of green involved!

  • http://vancouvergreenbusinessjournal.wordpress.com Razekane the Green Llama

    I’m already spending way too much time on StumbleUpon and Facebook and have a WordPress blog. I’ve avoided getting a crackberry or an iphone – do I really need to Twitter too?

    • http://www.jetsongreen.com Preston

      @Razekane –

      Twitter is just another tool, but I prefer it to StumbleUpon because I can filter out what I don’t like. Facebook, to me, is a once per month place to keep in touch with friends. I’d say try Twitter out and see if you like it. Then again, I also have a blackberry …

  • http://www.greenandcleanmom.org Sommer

    Thanks for adding me! What a great list. I’m loving reading all the new green tweets! Thanks!

  • http://www.ecosalon.com Sara

    I agree, it seemed like a lazy list put together by someone who isn’t really in social media. Oh well, guess HuffPo can’t be great at everything. BTW, they forgot me! ;) twitter.com/thewordisberry.

    Shari

    • http://www.jetsongreen.com Preston

      This list is way out-of-date now, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t know you were on Twitter at the time or I would have included you for sure. Still twitter buddies?

      • http://www.greenlaw.blogspot.com Shari Shapiro

        You will always be my twitter buddy! Will you add me to your special people list? Pretty please?

    Preston, with all those @green, you must have missed the rest me @greentalk!!! And how about @sharishapiro and @stephenDP? Are us lawyers missing for some reason? Just joking. (I see Chris made your list…)

    Shari, said Stephen was on there, but I did not see him.

    PS I have a post coming up which I hope helps you with studying for LEED AP. How is it going? I am so glad it is over for me.
