We’ve been using Twitter to interact with Linux users for almost two years now. For awhile we did a #FollowFriday segment featuring our favorite users from the week before. It was fun but we always wanted to do more. Now we’re doing the same thing here each Friday but listing some interesting facts about each user so you can learn something about them and what they’re in to.
