Twitter: People you should be following.

By Jon in Resources

Twitter. Love it or hate it there is no denying that it is a wealth of information that is here to stay. Whilst being widely applauded for being as open as possible with regards to the ways people can use it and it’s API, it does have one small drawback. Twitter is only as good as the network of people you’re following.

Using that logic I thought it would be a good idea to compile a list of twitter users that are either industry leaders, news breakers or just interesting tweeters. All of which are worth a follow.

    I will add some of these people to twitter. I agree that it’s a great resource.

    I have actually been following iJustine for a while because I love her video’s on her blog (http://www.tastyblogsnack.com).

    I’ll definetly check the others out though.

    I find Twitter a great way to keep in touch with people on the move. Especially with its little features. Stuff like being able to text updates etc.

    I don’t use Twitter on a regular basis because I can’t get my head round doing it all the time for some reason.

    I disagree with the statement
    “Twitter is only as good as the network of people you’re following”
    It should read
    “Twitter is only as good as the network of people following you”

    Are you talking about from an marketing standpoint, LBoulton?
