    I tend to follow anyone (or thing as the case may be) that I find interesting. Some are for humor and some are for information. I follow a few tech sites, a bunch of hockey sites and people, some musicians, some actors and actresses, a talk show host, etc.

    One thing you can do is look to see who others are following. You can also go to many sites and pick up their feed.

    I use it for a lot of the same reasons listed above. I actually participate in some practical uses as well....

    I serve on the staff of a large, multi-site church. I am a student pastor. The church uses twitter as a big tool for communication. We can get messages out to the majority of the body quickly. We can also use it for a chance to just throw out comments of encouragement and what not.

    Our whole staff is on twitter and it really keeps things light and enjoyable too.

    I follow Sprint and HTC for info on updates and Phil Helmuth the poker player because he's so full of himself it's funny. I've only been using it for a few weeks now a can't think of anyone else to follow yet.

    The thing I like about it is it gave me the option to have tweets sent to me in a text, so I don't have to go to the site or use an app.

    I knew he was on there because one time when he was in a TV game he whipped out his iPhone and took a quick video of the other players and told them he was posting it to Twitter. One of his tweets a few weeks ago told who won the National Heads Up tourney that's playing on NBC the next few weeks!!

    I have a very odd feeling that you have a taste for Hip Hop?

    The only celebs I follow are some that use Twitter to post stuff worth seeing. I'm not interested in their day to day activities so much, but rather enjoy a good chuckle or like to be updated on their upcoming performances. That said, I follow...
