The subject heading is used with all due respect!  I just wanted to provide a list of fantastic people who I am following on Twitter!

I first started using Twitter after I appeared in Mx.  It’s amazing how many people want to be your friend on Facebook once you’ve had your 15 minutes of fame!  I started using Twitter so that those who want to read up on my activities can do so without viewing the rest of my private life! 

Here are some of the amazing people I follow (in no particular order…) and I have taken their ‘about me’ also and added it below so you can see what they’re about :)
