As I get more and more involved in Twitter I keep stumbling across Amateur Radio Operators with Twitter accounts. This is great, as I am very pleased to see some Ham Radio operators on a fairly “new” thing such as Twitter. However, one of Twitter’s weak points is the lack of an ability to find like-minded people (such as fellow Hams) easily. Currently the best way to do it is to find someone who follows Hams on Twitter, slog through all the other hams’ follower/following lists in an effort to find more Hams and follow the same procedure with any other Hams you find. Not the easiest thing to do.
Jennifer Leggio came up a really good concept for Security geeks to find each other on Twitter and FriendFeed called “Security Twits.” In an effort to save my, and others, sanity on Twitter and being that imitation is the best form of flattery, I have co-opted the concept and started making a list of “Ham Twits” (As Jennifer pointed out, Twit is not a derogatory term, Twitter User == “Twit”).
So, without further ado, I present: Ham Twits.
Please, pass this around. Also, if you are on Twitter and are a Ham Radio operator, please contact me so I can add you to the list. Share and Enjoy!
