Twitter has a proud tradition--Follow Fridays. Every Friday millions of tweeps (twitter-people) share there favorite followers using the hashtags #FF or #FollowFriday. Maybe it's the love of  the new-evangelization in me, but I wanted to share a list of some of my favorite Catholic people and organizations on twitter. They've been using social media to get out the good-word and lead wonderful discussion on attaining the common good. This list is by no means comprehensive, but just represents the individuals I wanted to highlight. I've also tried to include a healthy mix of ideologies and backgrounds.  Make sure to share below who you enjoy following on twitter--and make sure to follow the users below. Happy #FaithfulFriday and have a great weekend!
