    For views, perspectives on issues pertinent to IC, DoD, DHS, NatSec, see these folks. The back-and-forth ranges wide and far, but by-and-large it’s on topic – and, most importantly, you don’t have to suffer too much attitude, too much “look-at-me, ma!” stuff. A seasoned, terse crew, this — and active:

    Bob Gourley @bobgourley
    Lewis Shepherd @lewisshepherd
    John Hale @johnhale
    Kelcy Allwein @kmallwein
    Amy Senger @sengseng
    Matthew Burton @matthewburton
    Andrea Baker @immunity
    @fantomplanet
    @robotchampion

    For starters….

    Sorry I missed this Steve, thanks for the shout out!

    You know what’s neat about Twitter? I start linking through to the names you listed and others listed in the comments and it’s like the old days of the web, where you get lost reading their tweets, looking at who they follow, etc. There’s such a wealth of interesting commentary and diversity out there!

    Aw shucks, thanks Steve!

    There’s also been a lot of buzz lately about @colleen_graffy, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Diplomacy at State. I just started following, but am looking forward to what she has to say!

    @LindyKyzer if you’re into awesome Army networking like I am :)
    @matthewburton tweets rarely, but has some good, long thoughts on his blog/web page.

    And of course, I echo everyone else already mentioned.

    Question for you twitterers out there. I have a new twitter site and a couple of people have told me that they did not get the update last Friday on their cell phone. Did I miss a setting somewhere to be able to send out the text messages?

    Lynette, if people are following you, they have to enable the cell phone update for your account on their own Twitter profiles. It is not based on your settings. Hope that helps!

    I’m @batterista (It’s Italian for drummer… I play drums, but not in Italy).

    I don’t know who’s on both Twitter and GovLoop except for @adrielhampton and @ariherzog – I follow both.

    Without a doubt, @badbanana is my favorite twitterer, but I doubt he’s also here!

    Except when plopped in front of my PC at home, I use Twitter almost completely on my smart phone. That thing was the best $200 investment I ever made.
