Twitter helps feed my need for news and gossip in a to-the-point quick way. However, twitter is completely ueseless if you aren't following interesting feeds. My favorite feeds so far are:
1. @nprnews - This one is obvious. I'm an NPR junkie.
2. @BostonUpdate - The city's quick & easy news and culture outlet.
3. @StLawU - Keeps me posted on my alma mater.
4. @GlobalPost - The best and most interesting international news source.
5. @ChelseaLately - Always good for a laugh
6. @EPAgov - The best of the EPA twitter feeds
7. @TTranscript - Keeps me posted on my hometown
8. @TWYE - If you know what this is, then you already know what a helpful tool it
is (if not and you're on a diet, check out http://www.tweetwhatyoueat.com/ to see what all the fuss is about)
9. @MeridaHome - Shameless plug for my company, but the twitter feed does have great links, deals, contests, and advice for people at all interest levels of green design.
10. @CameronBruns - another shameless plug.
