Who or what should I follow on Twitter?

Asked by erichw1504 (26309 points ) August 6th, 2009

I’ve had a Twitter account for about a month now and I only follow a couple people. Things I’m interested in are news, movies, sports, computers, internet, stuff like that. Are there some good, interesting people or organizations that I should follow to keep up-to-date with?

Don’t be a follower, be a leader!

When the Tour de France was going on, it was interesting to follow Lance Armstrong (@lancearmstrong). He updated quite a bit and it gave a different perspective to the event.

I’m sure whatever sport you’re interested in there has to be one of the players on twitter…

“tferris” and “kevinrose” always have interesting things to say.

@Lightlyseared: I told you the topics I am interested in. I’m not sure of any exact person or organization, that’s why I am asking.

At the moment there isn’t much to follow.
It seems there was a DDOS-attack on it an hour or so ago.

Look at the people you follow now. See who they follow and go from there.

@eponymoushipster is right, there are directories for this. In fact, Kevin Rose made one and it’s fairly popular, it’s called WeFollow

Search for things that interest you and follow the people who are tweeting about them.
