#followfriday is a twitter tradition of suggesting interesting people to follow on twitter. Posting a long version of it on my blog this Friday. I hope this inspires some of you who aren't on twitter, to now become a part of it.
Before I joined twitter, I thought of it as a place where celebrities made controversial remarks and the rest wrote mundane details of their personal lives. I thought it wasn't for me. It is only after joining that I've realised this: like on the rest of the web, twitter is what you want it to be. I tweet about crosswords, follow people whose tweets relate to my interests, and absolutely love it. Twitter introduced me to many crossword enthusiasts I might not have known otherwise. Thanks to Tony for getting me to join.
My recommendations for twitter accounts of crossword-related people.
