Some people are more into social media (marketing), business blogging and the likes. In a way it’s a list for people interested in SEO who want to know who to follow on Twitter. It’s by far not complete. The contrary is the case. Also this list is not a Twitter SEO celebrity list.

Thanks for the submit! Tried it myself but I destroyed the link: http://sphinn.com/story/115708So here again the comment I wrote:To all those NOT on the list (most of my friends) this was probably the most difficult list I ever have written. It took me more time to decide who should finally remain on the list than actually compiling the list in the first place. Maybe I’ll do one each Friday now :-)

Any list I’m on gets a Sphinn.  :DTad, be honest now ... did my tweet yesterday about how much I stink push me over the top? Because there’s plenty more where that came from.

I understand you are shying away from the heavy-hitters, but not putting Darren Rowse (problogger) on this list is like leaving Warren Buffet off of a list of "People Who Know Stuff About Investing."  The guy has 64,000 followers for a reason--he’s the best there is.  I think you’re doing an injustice to the Sphinn members who don’t sleep, eat and breathe SEO.And now that I have vented, I will Sphinn.

I think the point ericprudolf was to include people who were accessible. Even if the list was 200 long, there would have been worthy people who had been left off. And while Rowse is far more accessible than your average web superstar, the fact is with 64,000 followers you’re never likely to become cohorts. Tad’s point was to highlight people you can develop real relationships with.

Understood.  But at a minimum, the title should be changed to "30 Accessible SEO Twitter Users" or "30 SEO Twitter Users Who Will Return an Email."  The post takes on a whole new meaning when you name it correctly.  There is a huge difference between "must follow" and "accessible."  My neighbor who is an Accountant thinks he knows everything about medicine.  But if my son falls out of the tree in our backyard, I’m not going to take him to the neighbor’s house for treatment just because he happens to be home.If you want to add value to this article (for a possible Part II down the road) give me a reason to follow each of these people.  What do they know?  What do they specialize in?  What are each of them good at?  Why do you believe their information is worth reading? Otherwise, if everyone on this list (presumably) does the same thing, most people will just pick the top 3 and go with them.

ericprudolfI think the main point of the article as I understand, this is intended to not be just another, Problogger, Guy Kawaski, Mashable Twitter celebrity list.. Perhaps he could have called it"30 Must Follow SEO Twitter User who are not Twitter celebrities or problogger." ;-)Sure Problogger is HUGE in the Twitter/social media and blogging world but he has already been on many lists and most people are already aware of him. Great job tad on making this not just another Twitter celebrity list.I don’t know if "30 SEO Twitter Users Who Will Return an Email." is such a good idea because Tad has now way of knowing if these twitterers will actually return emails, so that might be a misleading title.On another note....Wow! I’m so flattered I made the list. Thanks for the vote of confidence Tad.

@seowoman You stink? Seriously? I have to remove you from the list!@SEOHolicc You’re welcome, I tried to put some people on it I don’t know that good so that it’s not so biased. You’re one of them. I watched your tweets and you deserved it.@ericprudolf I get your point but it seems to me that you haven’t read the post. It has a huge explanation for a list like this whch covers every angle of it.@JamesDuthie Exactly James. @htownseoguy You’re huge too but still accessible! How do you achive that!?@annie7 This list would be ridiculous without you!
