Top Sharing Tweeps from the Twittersphere

An essential resource for breaking news and community organizing, Twitter has become much more than a way to broadcast what you're having for lunch. It's also a great place to lean more about the sharing revolution. As something of a super-Follow Friday, we've compiled the following list of our favorite Twitter users who are posting news and information about the new sharing economy. This is far from an exhaustive list, so please share your favorites in the comments below. And while you're checking out these great tweeps, how about following Shareable at shareabledesign?
