I have found interesting things in all kinds of places I didn't expect on twitter. It depends what your own interests are, though. A lot of what I follow is either feminist or to do with language/ linguistics, but I also have some random ones in there, and some that tweet about all kinds of things.

Follow @LynnCSchreiber - she's always interesting

alexpolismum Mon 01-Jul-13 19:21:09

Of course, it goes without saying that I am a fascinating choice to follow! wink

MyHumpsMyLovelyBabyBumps Mon 01-Jul-13 20:01:38

Thanks guys.

Are you @alexpolismom on twitter?

alexpolismum Mon 01-Jul-13 20:11:17

Good point, I forgot to include it! I'm @alexpolistigers

The Queen. Very amusing grin

You need to follow your interests. Follow someone then check out who they follow. If you see someone interesting, follow them and check out who they follow.

It takes a wee while to build a Twitter account.

@thewomensroomuk The Women's Room
@EVB_Now End Victim Blaming
@schemaly Soraya Chemaly
@crankyfatfem Cranky Fat Feminist
@WstonesOxfordSt Just funny
@IndiaKnight India Knight
@ZerlinaMaxwell Zerlina Maxwell
Me, obviously

I'd also have a couple of news feeds like the BBC or Guardian/Independent etc and perhaps a couple of MPs, comedians etc

And I can confirm @alexpolistigers is also very interesting grin

You'll soon pick up a few other people to follow or you can look at someone you like and see who they follow.

@alexpolistigers, of course smile

And yy to @LynnCSchreiber.

Also @QuiltingMuriel.

It does take a while to get into the swing of it.

'Dem's gooduns, to add to scallops' list. What's your name on there, oh shellfish lover?

I'd suggest myself, but I think there might be a few people over at AIBU who would hunt me down if I outed myself right now smile. Also, I am much more boring than these lot.

@thedailymash is amusing
@LetToysBeToys of course!

yy to @LynnCSchreiber, @Glosswitch and @CCriadoPerez. Also @cathjanes and @K_IngalaSmith (she does great work with regards violence against women and NIA who are also worth following)

JenaiMorris Tue 02-Jul-13 20:49:57

SGM is ace, yes smile

@Puffles2010

There are lots more but I'm not sure who has and hasn't locked their accounts, so don't want to list them here.

There are some fab F1 and rallying tweeps, should that float your boat.

MyHumpsMyLovelyBabyBumps Tue 02-Jul-13 22:16:56

thanks guys!


is puffles sgm? is she still onMN? i never see her about anynore

TheDoctrineOfAllan Tue 02-Jul-13 22:20:10

No, Puffles isn't SGM. SGM namechanged, you'd know her if you saw her but she's not on here much, I think.

Caitlin Moran.

She's prolific, mind.

SGM got loads of abuse, changed her name and is now private. I don't know how you'd find her, sorry, and I don't want to post her name here (though I am sure that you are lovely and not an MRE) because she made herself private for a reason...
