People worth following on Twitter

Yes I know it's a cesspit yada yada fishcakes, but I think if you pick the right people it can be a good information source.

Please include an indication of their genre of output.

I follow Chris Choi. He always wants to know about transport and shops.

If you are worried about anyone on Twitter, just make people trend. See what they do about it. George Michael might be alive if I had. I didn't know he was on Twitter until work told me and I wish I had made him trend. I really do. Just answer the questions. See what people do.

Leftie - trending on Twitter would've had no impact on George Michael's life.

Leftie - 08 Oct 2019 10:04:27 (#4 of 53)

Probably not but that's all you can do. Just argue. Talk to everyone on there as well.

Every time Richard Madeley trends, people on Twitter keep hoping he's dead.

The only Twitter account you need to follow is @GrumpySkeletor. It's fucking hilarious.

@neal_katyal

@KevinMKruse

@NatashaBertrand

@ddale8

@Fahrenthold

@samstein

@Stonekettle

@itsJeffTiedrich (mainly abuse, but it's high-quality abuse)

Oh, and @RogerQuimbly for the Piers Morgan joke alone.

Leftie - 08 Oct 2019 10:43:20 (#15 of 53)

Not people but I follow Trading Standards. And the rules on certain things still don't seem terribly clear. Retail Gazette is good as well.

Chris Stewart (formerly of the BBC is good as well). Mainly talks about Boris Johnson, slags off BBC now he doesn't have to bother with it. John Myers is good as well if are a fan of radio.

Though I went to one of his lectures and had an argument about having celebrities working as radio presenters when other presenters need degrees. He said they have been hired for their personality.

But what I was angry about was, if it's easy to train them quite quickly, what do the other people working in radio need degrees and other qualifications for?

the MERL

Whores of yore

Towlie - 08 Oct 2019 14:24:25 (#17 of 53)

Be warned, Whores of Yore can sometimes be NSFW. Interesting account though.

PaperRustler - 08 Oct 2019 14:57:50 (#18 of 53)

The MERL is great.
