A few weeks ago I posted 10 photography sites that you should be following on Twitter. Well, we all know that there are WAY too many cool sites out there to follow than can be included in one short list, so here are 10 more.
Maybe we’ll make this a regular feature, since we keep finding great new photographers, media and tip sites and loads of other interesting content out there in the tweetland that we think you should know about.
And as always, don’t forget to follow The Photoletariat @photoletariats.
