#FF Twitter Recommendations - New Orleans

Inspired by the Engadget "Who should I follow on Twitter?" series & the #FF (Follow Friday) tradition on Twitter, I thought I'd put together a recurring set of posts showcasing users in various topics that I find interesting.

The initial selection of users I'll spotlight are all from, or affiliated with, New Orleans.  If you're from the city, claim it as your spiritual home, or would just like to learn more about its culture, these Twitter users give you a nice cross-section of the pulse of New Orleans.
