    I know Twitter can be fun, I just need some recommendations on who to follow.
    I'm just looking for the usual stuff, certainly music, current events, science, health, politics, comedy, what are your favorites? And, account names / hash tags would be appreciated.
    Yep, I'm a twitter newbie, just seems like it could be fun and interesting, if done right.
    Thanks!

    Hard to give recommendations without knowing exactly what you like, but my suggestion would be to search for musicians, actors, comedians etc. that you are a fan of.

    Before following them though - check their twitter feed to see if the artist themselves posts on there, or whether they have a publicist just posting on their behalf for marketing purposes. It is fairly obvious.

    It is a good platform for engaging with users too. I have had tweet replies from comedians Bill Bailey and Bill Oddie, musicians such as Orianthi, Tal Wilkenfeld, Philip Sayce and Joe Satriani.

    There are lots of parody accounts out there too which are hilariously funny - like Lord Voldermort, Bad Darth Vader etc.

    I also follow a lot of science accounts like the ESA and the Mars Rovers, which give great information and updates as to what is happening in space exploration.

    mostly local and national sports sources, it's fun to monitor my feed while a game is on. I get a lot of insight into things that you don't get from the TV talking heads.

    Also a few news outlets.
