Interesting Tweets of the Day

20130219-212819.jpg

I am finally soaking in Twitter for all its worth. I talked about this a few weeks ago but I am really seeing the benefits now. All I have to do is open my Twitter account and start reading.

I follow about 380 people who tell me all that I need to know on a second-by-second basis about politics, current events, business, technology, health, food, theater, fashion, economics, music, pop culture, the arts, city news, publishing, and entertainment.

I am getting news feeds faster, better contacts, and a one-stop news source.
The most interesting part is that I am reading tweets from the people who make the news. No filters, no interpretation, and no waiting.

Here is a sample of what I read today. I bet you didn’t know half this stuff. Click on the links to go to each Twitter feed and follow them yourself!
