Portland is extremely well-represented on Twitter, the popular micro-blogging platform. The following is a list of some of the most interesting citizens in the Portland Twitterverse. The goal is to have a list of all of the Portland Tech Tweeple. Feel free to follow them, ask them for advice, or run into them at the many local Portland Tech Events.
If you're not on the list already and you're a tech person in Portland please add yourself (in alphabetical order by your twitter handle).
