My Kick-ass #followfriday and Adirondack Twitter Post

July 31st, 2009 · 9 Comments · Miscellania

Today is Friday. All you Twitter folks know what that means, #followfriday.  This post is LIVE DONE and a work-in-progress.

Follow me on Twitter Before I get started, I want to do something a bit crazy – Introduce myself.  I’m Doug Yu aka @tourpro. I’ve been whipping around the net using that handle for quite some time now, but have resisted revealing myself. Now that I’ve been using Twitter, I realize that it’s not fair for my new friends to not know the real me. Currently, I work for Adirondack Tourism and I also manage an I Love NY Welcome Center. Rather than try to explain too much, I’ll let hashtags do the talking. Here are some that I would use to describe myself:

#adirondacks, #marketing, #biking, #procycling, #travel, #plattsburgh, #lakechamplain, #salsacycles, #fatchance, #blogger, #socialmedia, #dad, #recreation, #hike, #ski, #tcot, #conservation, #newsjunkie, #paddle, #camp, #wordpress,

If you find someone here you like, please do feel free to copy/paste, edit, and recommend. I hope I can be comprehensive and I do apologize to anyone who I’ve overlooked. Maybe I got you last time?
