The Followables

04 April 2010 | cities, Twitter | One comment

Twitter is great fun. Yes, it can be distracting, as many writers have complained. But hey, so is life!

Twitter is also very useful. I've made contact with many people who share my fascination with the subject I'm researching for my next book - the history and future of cities. I've listed nearly a hundred of these people here. I recommend them - they're well worth following.

It looks like some people have found my tweets useful too: the other day the cultural news website Flavorwire included me on a list of the "10 Book Types You Should Follow on Twitter". Quite an honour when you think it includes people like Sarah Weinman (@sarahw), Ron Charles(@roncharles), the Washington Post’s fiction editor, as well as book website The Millions (@The_Millions).

Oh, and by the way - I have my own list of book people to follow on Twitter here. So what are you waiting for?
