Because it is a Holiday today, I, of course, woke up waaaay stupid early.

These folks are not necessarily the Tweeps that I Tweet with the most, and I have not included any family or “friends.”
I have met a few of these Tweeps, I would like to meet them all, and have a Tea or a Scotch.
By including them, and NOT others, I mean no slight… it is just what I could come up with at 4:30 in the morning.
Follow them, go ye forth, and conquer the world.
