#ecomonday hits twitter

If you're on Twitter, chances are you've noticed #followfriday. On Fridays tweeters list people that they follow that they think other people should follow. They also use the hashtag #followfriday in the tweet. No one has to follow the suggestions back, but it helps people find others with the same interests to follow. I've been introduced to some great green twitters this way, but now there's an even better way to find those who tweet who are green.

Last week, a new hashtag showed up - #ecomonday. On Mondays, green twitterers will be doing a green follow day. It's as easy to do as #followfriday. Just put #ecomonday in your tweet and then list other environmentalists on twitter that you would recommend to others.

You can then follow the #ecomonday stream by searching for it in the sidebar of Twitter or by following it at - the originator of #ecomonday.

You can also follow @ecomonday for more information on this in tweet form. And, you can follow me @rshreeves. If you're on Twitter, feel free to share your @ in the comments below.

If you have absolutely no clue what I'm talking about with all this Twitter, tweet, hashtag stuff, here's a great introduction to Twitter.
