Five on Friday: 15 Twitter Accounts You Should Be Following

Today’s Five on Friday will be short and sweet. (Don’t you just love those types of blog posts? The rambling ones can be okay sometimes, but there are days when you just want to skim some useful information and move on, instead of reading someone waxing poetic on a touching story in their life or sharing a humorous anecdote. Not to say that those sorts of things don’t have their place in the blogging community; on the contrary, those blog posts can be very entertaining. But this isn’t one of them, we assure you. It’s just a quick and dirty… oh, sorry… we’re digressing…)
