If you use Twitter, read this. “Of the tweeples, by the tweeples…”

Okay small, but mighty (and growing) network. I did something crazy today…

I launched the Unofficial Top 50 Tweeples to FOLLOW Guide contest (i.e. the who’s who of Twitter 2008).

Why? I jokingly added the tag line “Of the tweeples, by the tweeples.”  But, it’s no joke. I mean it.  I wanted to create something that the people who actually “tweet” own. A chance to test our voice. While the idea of a Top 50 guide is all in good fun, I am going to compile the results  and share with the entire tworld (or at least those following me and those who decide to retweet). Will anyone be laughing? Or…will the results be treated as a credible source? Warren Whitlock is already blogging about the contest, Do you follow the most popular tweeple? That’s got to mean something!

I don’t know the answers to the above questions, but I do know that we need to keep people voting until the survey closes on October 7 at 1:00 p.m. CST with recipients announced on October 8 at 9:00 a.m. CST.  The more votes, perhaps the more credibility. We won’t know until it’s over.
