Follow a backpacker on Twitter

New to Twitter or interested in finding out what all the hoopla surrounding the newish micro blog is about? Well, Gregory decided to compile a list of backpackers on Twitter who will not only provide you with useful information, but will also help ease your way into the geeky tech world of Twitter. Think of Twitter as more or less a constant news feed. It allows the 'follower' to easily and quickly receive up to the minute info on who Kim Kardashian is dating this second or about things that really matter, like the newest in hiking boots. And for those of you who consider yourselves tweeting tycoons, this list will help affirm the who's who of the Twitter backpacking world. This list follows no sort of order...Feel free to add a backpacker we might be missing! Follow us, too @GregoryPacks ! BackpackerMag
