Internet Governance Twitters to Follow

If you are a Twitter, you realized the importance of following the right people. Here are some of the Diplo folks who are making a difference and can help you amplify your voice on Twitterville.

Bernard Sadaka is @sdkaaa - we have been colleagues at the United Nations Internet Governance Forum Secretariat and Bernard is a TOP technology professional and a great man with tremendous social skills with friends everywhere (like a good Lebanese). If you ever want to exchange ideas with a tech pro, Bernard is the man.

Godfred Ahuma is @gkahuma and we met in the Third Annual Meeting of the IGF in Hyderabad, 2008. It was a great experience and he is a top professional working with security and other themes - you can read more on the publication Capacity Development.

Deirdre Williams
is @DWslu and is a new Twitter, who has consistently sent great articles to the IGCBP-Talk list on privacy issues. Deirdre, we all look forward to get the scoop via Twitter as well now!

Carolina Rossini
is @carolinarossini is a great example of the "standing on the shoulders of giants": along with the folks at the Berkman Center, married to John Wilbanks, and a long professional experience including companies like Telefonica/Terra and the Getulio Vargas Foundation Centre for Internet and Society, she is a top expert on Intellectual Property and highly connected to the main nodes of information that you want to be part of - follow her now!

Now, let's talk about privacy! Better not disclose too much personal information about who is behind these accounts... :o) hehe - so let's go straight to what matters: follow @txitua for Txitua, @thepublicvoice for The Public Voice Coalition, @CSISAC and, of course, @privacy140 for EPIC, the Electronic Privacy Information Center.

To be connected with a MAG - Multistakeholder Advisory Group member from Burundi, Jean Yves Gatete is the man to follow @gajey

Serbian speakers should watch a new Twitter in the house: Nicola Bozic @bozicn

Now, if I can share who has influenced and guided me the most into the Twitter world, this one is Rafik @rafik. He is extremely active in so many venues I cannot even try to list all of them: ICANN, youth initiatives, remote participation, creative commons, you name it. He is very well connected and very helpful to guide newbies with different tech-tools and retweet important messages you want to be distributed. Also, check the people he's having conversations with - the list includes Guy Kawasaki and other big names. There's a lot to learn from Rafik.

Another name you probably heard by now is Charity Gamboa (now Charity Gamboa Embley) @charityGE. Charity is also another uber-productive machine who leads top blogging at the Tower of Babel, ISOC Philippines, remote participation and a thousand other exciting projects, and always willing to help and get involved in other initiatives that matter - one of these is @globalvoicesfil - Global Voices Lingua - GV in Filipino

Portuguese-speaking folks should definitely follow the work of our Brazilian friends Raquel Gatto @raquelgatto and Moreiras @moreiras - both are on the cutting edge of Internet design, working at the Brazilian Internet Steering Committee and have loads of knowledge to share.

Last but not least, Diplo also has an account specifically for the discussion of Internet governance and act as an amplifier for your voices, projects and concerns. If you want to be connected to this hub, just follow @igcbp (which stands for Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme)

If your Twitter name is not listed in this post, just reply as a comment either with your Twitter account or those that you suggest to be included on this list!
