At least a quarter of our members are on Twitter, that is to say about 1% of our whole Twitter following. I always get a buzz when two Tweeters meet each other for the first time at one of our events and you see eyes light up in recognition of often a lengthy 149 character friendship.
We have authors, novelists, tour guides, archivists, librarians, academics, bloggers, cartoonists, musicians, journalists, students, publishers, buildings experts, heritage professionals, ghost writers, programmers, genealogists and regular Joes like me who just love their history.
I never seem to have time to do the Friday #FF thing, and besides there is always the risk of missing people out. So here’s a list of London Historians members, please #FF them. And let me know if you’re a member and I’ve missed you out.

Altogether, now! #FF them all, #FF them all, the long and the short and the tall… Etc.
Update 9 August: Thank to Calum in comments for suggesting I put everyone on a list within Twitter. Now done, and here.
Totally coincidentally, @wwalks wrote an excellent introduction to Twitter on her blog only yesterday. So, if you’d like to get more out of it, or are thinking of getting on Twitter for the first time, I recommend you have a read of it.
