Who to Follow on Twitter

Right, as if I don't waste enough time on here, I've finally dragged myself into the 21st century and gone onto twitter :shock:

It all seems a bit mind blowing to me with so many choices and possibilities, I don't especially see the point of following your friends because you kind of know what they're upto anyway so what's out there?

Who and what is worth following?
"Arran, you are like the Tony Benn of smut. You have never diluted your depravity and always stand by your beliefs. You have my respect sir and your wife my pity" :lol:

    No idea, I never look at it. Don't know why I even created an account. If anything is interesting enough it gets mentioned elsewhere anyway.

    If you like football, follow people like Danny Baker & Danny Kelly, Lineker etc. Media people are usually interesting, Al Murray is very active as is Richard Osman off of TV's Pointless. Red Shark Media if you're into professional video news info etc. David Badiel is good, Frankie Boyle nailed his colours to the mast for their referendum...

    People come & go - pick a few to follow and chop & change as you get the feel of it, or as people float up & back down again.

    Completely agree with you on Twitter. Never ever look at my personal account but use it for business and for looking at cycling updates during races.

    Only use it for work now, BBC Sporf is quite good at times, Stephen Fry is generally good.

    It depends on what interests you.
    I use instagram as I find it far better than twitter and get to see things I like rather than sifting through the cr4p I don't like. I don't go in for the "follow 4 follow" aspect of it as you end up with tons of stuff so only follow those that directly interest me.

    Twitter is far less time consuming than BR, plus the 140 character limit forces people to be more concise and clever... :wink:

  • If I had a twitter account you could follow me. As I don't, I'll keep you updated once a day on this thread until you 'unfollow' me. Today's gem is:

    Thinking of buying a RC plane but therez so much choice.

    More importantly, who are you on twitter? I might sign up just to stalk you.

    If your into cycling you could follow say Cavendish. When you follow someone it is quite interesting to see who they follow. I like motor racing so follow joe saward.

    There isn't a picture of me on twitter. I have an account but can't remember the account name. I only used it once to try and pull Susanna Reid. She, can't have got my message, either that or she confused me with the pervs that stalk her on twitter.

    Susanna Reid, that's a good shout :twisted:

    I don't use it for anything important, just follow some sports personalities and photographers of sports I like (mainly windsurfing). The list below are some humorous one which are quite random, depending on what makes you laugh.
    It's a great way to get a live stream of sports, for example F1, bike racing, football etc by following the official hashtag.

    The below are some random ones I follow.

    That Sean's an ugly critter by the way so I'm doubting his claims that his Polish bird is hot :wink:

    Only jealous as he wasn't perving on you.


    Oleg isn't bad, though the russian tweets annoy me as I can't understand them. Majority of the stuff I have is work/news related.

    Ted talks, David Epstein, Sebestian Montaz, Jered Gruber for cycling pics and lots of athletes who are active on twitter beyond what the team tell them to say
