7 interesting people to follow on Twitter

Last year I posted a list of 40 interesting people to follow on Twitter. At the risk of offending many of my unlisted Twitter friends (who are incredibly interesting to me but possibly less so to the public in general), here are seven more interesting people to follow on Twitter. Well, technically six people to follow on Twitter and one bot.

Very Short Story @VeryShortStory

Sure I’ve dabbled with writing very short stories here and here, but this is an entire Twitter account dedicated to tweeting stories of 140 characters or fewer.

There are many social media accounts that just post sharebait pictures, but most don’t worry about fact checking or copyright. Luckily, @picpedant is on the job pointing out these errors. The account points out mislabeled images and corrects attribution for images tweeted without proper credit.

Everyword @everyword

@everyword has been tweeting every word in the dictionary. Now, it has gotten to the Z words, which fills me with anticipation. What will be the final word (since it’s not likely to be zzxjoanw)? What will happen when it reaches the final word? Will it just stop? Will we find out it was all a dream? Will we look up to see another plane crashing into the island?

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Kory Stamper @korystamper

Speaking of words, Kory Stamper speaks for words. Kory is the human behind responses on m-w.com (Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary). Her personal tweets are smart and often word-centric with a bit of snark.

Bored Elon Musk @boredelonmusk

Elon Musk is a rich inventor who comes up with or at least financially backs innovative ideas like Tesla Motors, SpaceX and the Hyperloop. This is a parody account that imagines what less significant ideas he might come up with when he’s bored.

Ginger-At-Law @GingerAtLaw

Ginger-at-law writes indescribably silly tweets and retweets indescribably silly tweets by others. I’ve discovered a few other people to follow via @GingerAtLaw

And for something a bit more serious:

Pussy Riot @pussyrrriot

The Russian punk bank Pussy Riot has a verified twitter account and tweets in English. Most of their posts deal with conflicts and civil rights abuses in Russia and elsewhere.

That’s me. If you liked this post or my blog in generally you should follow me on Twitter. I tweet and retweet an eclectic mix of good stuff.



In case you didn’t get the hint above, you should follow me on Twitter. I’m on Google+ and Facebook  too.
