Today I was susggeted by Atlanta Blackstar online publication as one of the 8 Black Techies Every Blerd Should Follow on Twitter. I’ve been on Twitter since 2006 as user 800 or so and if I’m not the first black person on Twitter I’m in at least the top 10. Regardless it’s still nice to be nominated as someone to follow almost nine years later. Thanks Atlanta Blackstar!
Also if you’re wondering what a “BLERD” is… “BLERD” is short for, you guest it, Black Nerd. Just search urbandictionary for BLERD for more blerd references. There’s even a Blerd Nation website and twitter account @BlerdNation.
Wayne Sutton @WayneSutton The BUILDUP general partner has garnered a lot of attention from tech giants, including AT&T. AT&T has described Wayne Sutton as a “digital media thought leader”. BUILDUP is a global impact firm that helps connect tech entrepreneurs across the globe with mentors, educators and potential partners. While many of these techies have Twitter feeds that are incredibly entertaining, Sutton has one of the most useful feeds for emerging entrepreneurs who want to make their way into the tech space. It’s also a great way to try to connect with the tech leader and learn a thing or two from his many years in the tech space. – See more at: http://blerds.atlantablackstar.com/2015/01/13/8-black-techies-every-blerd-follow-twitter/3/#sthash.5aW4ioDt.dpuf
