The most handicapped person in the world is a negative thinker; a person who has the skills, abilities, talents and tools, yet chooses not to use them.

Twitter is a good way to get the notice of companies. When you're having customer service issues.

They don't want negativity in their Twitter news feed

I follow Dan Bell and Will Krupinsky

Brandi Glanville

Some of the newscasters for my local station.

Jenna Jamison, yes the former porn star. Now she's a mom and outspoken conservative

A lot of the people who have many followers buy boots. To make their social media presence seem much larger than it really is.

I have a Twitter account and I really don't follow anyone nationally famous. I currently follow some local radio show hosts, a couple friends, some local news anchors and newscasts, and maybe a couple of national people.

As for posting or retweeting, I really don't do much. I am somewhat active, I guess, on it Monday through Friday from 5:30 AM until 9 AM as that's when my favorite local radio show is on. Tweeting is a quick way for me to comment and/or communicate with the hosts, with whom I've developed a bit of a relationship.

I also learned on Friday that a local news anchor is going on medical leave to deal with a really badly and continually infected left ankle; he's about my age and is having it amputated! Eventually, he'll get a prosthetic. He will be out awhile and has a young family, I was able to let him know I'd be thinking and praying for him and his family during this time.

Wow! I am long winded this morning! I guess what I am getting at is that I don't bother with most of the famous and advertising type accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc., etc., etc.

Full disclosure, I don't have a twitter account. It never really appealed to me.

I found a statistics website that said Katy Perry and Justin Bieber both had over 100 million followers. Taylor Swift and Rihanna had 80+ million followers.

So I'm curious, for those who do use twitter regularly and read or re-post tweets, who do you follow ?
