@Zaibatsu -- One of our local Twitter power users. Zaibatsu -- aka Reg Saddler -- is an IT consultant by day, social media rockstar by night (probably by day, too -- he does some social-media consulting as well). He was so good at Digg that he got kicked off the site -- kind of like an athlete's number being retired, I guess. He's also a co-host of nerdtacular podcast The Drill Down, a weekly look at important issues in tech and on the web. This Twitter feed will plug you in to all sorts of fascinating, nerd-friendly content from around the web -- you don't get to be the number four most influential Digg user ever by not understanding what nerds like to look at online.
@TatteredCover -- Bibliophiles already know what an awesome bookstore Tattered Cover is. They probably know that the store regularly holds events, like books signings and readings, with authors both famous and obscure. But, if they are like me, they forget to check the listings and miss out on cool stuff all the time. No more! The Tattered Cover Twitter feed is full of timely reminders of cool shit going on there, plus links to other book-friendly resources online. Basically, if you're in Denver and like reading, this should be a mandatory follow.
@FancyTigerCraft -- If you're more into making stuff than reading stuff, then Fancy Tiger Craft's Twitter feed may be more your speed. These hip, crafty kids are all about the fine art of crafts -- knitting, sewing, printmaking, cat weaving, whatever -- you name it, they do it. And they'll alert you to cool events going on at their store -- like their regular craft ights, and occasional awesome parties -- plus give you the heads-up when something particularly cool comes in to the store. For example: "Let us introduce you to our newest needlefelting kit - French Macarons. Check it out!! http://ow.ly/ehiN" No idea what a French Macarons is (hell, no idea WTF needle felting is...), but it sounds awesome.
