    Twitter, if you don't know, is one of those social media things the young people like. There are a few people I always look forward to reading, like the Australian Liam Hogan (the Irish Liam Hogan is good too), his fellow ocker Eleanor Robertson (@marrowing) and judeinlondon.

    What about the rest of ye?

    A Ryan giggs account would be good, but he fell out with Twitter somewhat.

    I'm joking. I muted him some time ago. Life got better.

    I follow Doug Henwood to hear when there's new LBO podcasts out and he has the odd interesting take on US politics, Mark Blyth sometimes links to interesting talks including his own and Working Class History is worth a follow. Bristol Radical History too.

    Follow libcom still but considering sacking it off as what I don't scroll right past is usually just annoying. Odd decent link or international update is about it.

    I follow all of these, and find them all worthwhile (although some of them are also often full of shit) redrumlisa, kenanmalik, sam_kriss, kindofwater, dougald, ayocaesar, joemuggs

    TBH I mostly follow lawyers, journalists and liberals on twitter though. Fuck knows how it's ended up like this.

    Sam Kriss pisses a lot of people off. It's quite funny.

    I don't like stavvers - she comes out with some shit sometimes.

    He's become less interesting since his hatred of Corbyn has consumed him so much, but he still posts some good stuff.

    I love sam kriss. He's so very pleased with himself and all the books he's read, but he's got some sound analysis and an enjoyable turn of phrase.

    Avoid as usual but did see a bit of her hoisting-on-own-petard beasting after hob nobbing with nazis (again).

    He is a very good writer. It almost doesn't matter what the content is - he's a wordsmith (lol)

    I replaced all my political follows on Twitter with classical musicians and feel much happier for it.
