With millions of users and over 3 million visits per month (according to Compete.com), Twitter has rapidly grown from a niche service into a mainstream online application for communication, branding and networking.
70+ Twitter Profiles on Cape Cod & The Islands
In the spirit of recently published Twitter user lists including everything from prominent members & brands to online marketers and even home builders, here is a list of Twitter profiles in and around Cape Cod and the Islands.
I’m sure this list is not comprehensive, so if you or someone you know is missing, please feel free to add them via comments below, @reply me through Twitter or simply send a message. I hope you find the list valuable and are able to connect with some interesting people!
UPDATE 1/27/2010: Now that Twitter has developed their own list functions, make sure to check out the Cape Cod Twitter list, which will be the most convenient way to follow people and organizations on Cape Cod. I’m not really updating this list as regularly, so feel free to @reply me with your information.
