UPDATED: I should have titled this How To Find People To Follow...
I get this question regularly from new users to Twitter. I don’t put a lot of weight on the rankings on these lists (including my appearance on them) but they are a good place to start.
Note that you see Minneapolis and not St. Paul or Twin Cities. Most directories recognize Minneapolis as “the city” when they mean both. Some folks in St. Paul are being creative and in their Bio saying, “St. Paul not Minneapolis” and are getting listed in the Minneapolis directories.
To my friends across the river, no I am not trying to be a snob. I am just going with the crowd:
- Minneapolis on Twitter Grader
- Minneapolis on Twitterholic
- Minneapolis on Twellow
- Minneapolis on WeFollow
- Minneapolis on LocalTweeps

Most directories or lists rank by followers and that can (is) a mistake. It is not about how many people follow someone but what comes out of the interaction, communication and relationship.
If you find someone you know or like to follow, dig through who follows them and who they follow. Surely you will find some more cool people to get to know.
If I missed a site or you have a favorite directory (there are a lot to list) add it in the comment section.
