    i just started using Twitter and I am curious who people here follow? my favorite so far is Merlin Mann ( @hotdogsladies). i am starting to figure out that the people who post their every move are not worth following, but the people who post really interesting or funny statements are.

    I follow a few "famous" people and then a few in my home town. I agree though, the folks who post the I'm here doing this all the time gets old real quick. I don't mind a little of that, because sometimes you might find a cool place.

    @tayzonday - Tay Zonday, just because he has some random posts that crack me up at random times.
    @anarbor - Because they're from around here and I still need to hit a show with them before they get big.
    @shyforshy - Because they're cool.

    My famous followers:

    @stephenfry (Stephen Fry)
    @wossy (Jonathon Ross)
    @alexalbrecht & @kevinrose (from Diggnation)
    @rustyrockets (Russell Brand)
    @richardbranson (Richard Branson)

    And another really cool twitterer is @fforward, they daily post a very strange or interesting link to an article which is always worth a read, do check it out. I don't know who's behind it, I think it might be Twitter themselves.
