Written by Glenn Letham (@gletham)

There’s lots of cool things about Twitter including a TON of third-party add-ons but what makes it very useful is the people!

There's plenty of GIS companies, Geo-bloggers, and Geo technology professionals that you can follow including @esri, @erdas, @terrago, @gotgeoint, @gisuser, @lbszone, @loopt, @navteq, @bentleysystems, @mappsgeo and many other GIS companies and Geo professionals (including me @gletham)… Read on below for pointers to 12 "Geo" Twitters that you might wish to add to your followers.
