A Load of Twits


On the eve of Dubai Twestival, Dubai 92 Radio DJ and top celebrity Twitterer Catboy decided to announce on air that we would compile a list of Dubai's 100 Most Compelling Tweeters, so that newbies to the world of Twitter here in the UAE can kickstart their tweeting with some new and informative friends.

Given the grief caused by our last joint venture, the infamous list of Dubai's top bloggers, I've moved to a secret location for the next few days. This list is posted on Catboy and GeordieBird's Facebook fan page, which I do commend you join up to (It's linked here), but I've reproduced it here purely because people seem to have been having problems linking through to the Facebook page that the list is on.

If you're not already on Twitter but fancy giving it a whirl, sign up today at http://twitter.com, then click on each link below, start following and get lost in the world of Twits.

First of all, here are our Twitter 'handles'...

There are 98 ... and Nagham is listed twice. So 97. Ah but it's 100 with the initial handles of catboy , geordiebird and yourself.
Got it :)

alexander... said...

Should be all fixed now, 100 Twits and deduped, with a few major omissions remedied.

Lists. *sigh*

Venkatesh Sridhar said...

Awesome!! But cant believe you missed out @HHShkMohd

Umar in Dubai said...

Nice list. Shameless plug. I am here

Modesh's brother said...

I think unless Shk Mo is spotted replying to either of the lists authors from his iPhone or Blackberry, or unless he turns up at Twestival, he shouldn't be on the list as compelling.

Life is comprised of strange choices. Bahdobian is a future gambit - I think it will become compelling soon.

BillyBoysClub comes from Catboy, so I'll have to come back to you on that one...

alexander... said...

Right, Billiboysclub now corrected.

Apologies for the inconvenience!

Hellwafashion.com said...

Thanks again, think this is good for twitter in UAE, will create awareness and get more poeple tweeting hopefully!!
