Some dude collects VHS copies of Twin Cities Newscasts and puts them online for us to marvel at. Most surprisingly, that dude is NOT me


Well, that's an unfortunate time for me to find his latest tweet. Sorry about that, if you're offended by butts. Jaime is a pretty queer artist (I'd add "just ask him" but I promise you'd found that out unprompted without asking him) and quite a provacoteur amongst the Twin Cities art scenes...whatever they are...in addition to being a great human being, which is mostly how *I* know him, as I have managed to skip out and miss almost all of his performances. He usually hangs out on Facebook and doesn't tweet too much; when he DOES tweet, it's almost always a photo of his cats crossposted from Tumblr.

Symantec_Corporation
@MrVRay

My rule is to post the latest TWEET, not to post the latest retweet when giving you an example tweet, but it looks like Rasheed set up this account, retweeted once, and then never used it again. Possibly meant as a companion account to his "Mr. V-Ray" blog. This is all very inside-Symantec stuff nobody cares about, I reckon. Let's move on


Our district's GOP will NEVER win an election, but they're always good for a larf. (I do wonder if folks around here will ever get the idea in their collective heads that perhaps blindly following one party for decades may NOT be the best course of action.) I used to follow some individual folks representing the party, but they were just so, so awful, and abused the dot-at reply (dude, NOBODY needs to read EVERY reply you're tweeting out), were generally aggressive, belligerent and hostile...well, basically every bad stereotype about Repulicans you've ever heard, but actually backing it up. Those people were unfollowed and haven't exactly reformed their behaviour. I do wonder if I would get more or less followers if I suddenly started spouting political talking points...but I think I'm incapable of Twittering that way for very long. (I BARELY got political **while I was ostensibly running for mayor**)


Current State Senator (DFL). She's been very inoffensive, which is maybe the most I could ask for out of politicians around here


I love that Ramsey Lewis, the last guy I'd expect to be on Twitter, is on Twitter. Very infrequent tweeter, mostly lets me know which town very far away from me he's performing in. I'd love to see him live before one of us croaks


The great one tweets maybe three times a year - which is still more frequently than he puts out music.


KARE morning show hostess - I swear, this woman NEVER sleeps. Usually one of the four people awake on my timeline at 2am, when she retweets a bunch of breaking news and/or news I'd already read several hours ago


Formerly one half of Global Communication, has performed under so many aliases I can't count - now releasing under his own name as well (this track "Shinkansen" is particularly good) - thankfully, his releases usually show up as cheap Amazon MP3s because otherwise I'd never be able to hear them



Formerly one half of Global Communication - I think I sought him out when I found out Tom was on Twitter. Does a lot more DJing and collaborative work than Middleton, but like Middleton shares a lot of incredible music (usually via YouTube videos) on his timeline - I do wonder if we'll ever get another Global Communication album; they were INCREDIBLE slices of ambient and/or funk from outer space.

Another apparently dead social service (although their .com is still up!)


TAKE IT BACK DOUG


aka The Masked Man's (then?) roommate - somehow didn't use this relationship to further her nonexistent social media career


I never buy anything they promote but I do like knowing what they're putting out. One day they'll put out that thing that only I will be interested in, I'm sure.


If you only follow one sports mascot, make sure it's CRUNCH!


Another artist I was delighted to learn was on Twitter - even if they haven't tweeted in almost a year


I like big fat Brian - he has a lot more free time than more famous brother Brad but somehow doesn't tweet as much


I like Wayne and have no idea which team he's currently playing for but wish him well - oh, snap, he's on the Lakers? Too bad, loser!


An appropriate "final" tweet for this account, I suppose. (He lost to Kari above)


Formerly the account of twins Angela & Amber Cope, who drove (if you can call it that) in the Nationwide Series. Amber's since disappeared off the face of the earth. I always mean to tweet Angela, asking "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH AMBER?!" only I don't think she'd find it as amusing as I would. Amber is the hotter twin, by the way. Sorry, Angela, but I think you know it's true.

Sly Stone tweets if you're very, very, very patient and don't mind waiting for months and years. (On the other hand, when he DOES tweet, it's always a pleasant surprise!)

UPDATE: Skype finally shuttered the @Qik account, so they disappeared from my list

I also finally unfollowed Amazon Music after one too many tweets like this (theirs, not mine):



I'm currently following 539...will I still be after this set of 10? LET'S FIND OUT

Former Timberwolf, now with...is he still with the Wizards? He's a hoot on Instagram. He loves his family!


Future former Timberwolf and nobody loves Puerto Rico more. Coqui


Live tweets Thursday Night Football


Former (briefly) Timberwolf - I would unfollow him for his generally useless Seattle tweets but he just doesn't tweet often enough to get me to pull that trigger


From Timberwolves communications guy, now boosting Downtown Minneapolis - and how nice that they finally have somebody on their side


I count most of this band as friends...they haven't been very active lately


Formerly Wahooly, now very inactive (and their domain name is "parked")...or else I would have unfollowed them. In fact, I think I'll unfollow them now just to play it safe


JB went to UCR the same time I did (friend of a girlfriend), now tweets very abstractly about Los Angeles. This is actually the most lucid thing he's tweeted in about a year, so you're lucky there.

(...assuming it's true - you never know)

You know, I don't know if I actually know her or not - I think I followed her because she followed me and a lot of my Minneapolis friends were already following her. She used to promote bands through this account, but now mostly lets you know how awful Monsanto is. I can't bring myself to unfollow her. I guess I'm waiting for her to unfollow me. How passive aggressively Minnesotan!


Former NASCAR Nationwide driver, deserved a better gig but hasn't gotten it. Consider her as Danica with a better personality and no sense of entitlement...and also no sponsorship, which is why she tweets about sitting around at home instead of driving.

KARE reporter, now also third string sports anchor - beats trees apparently?


Former coworker and would-be mentor (although not sure he knew it) - once bought me a steak - never really took to Twitter, though, sadly


May still post here, not sure - I have no idea why his Twitter is private as you'd think he'd want the world to see him heckle other people I also follow and be a big homer for the 49ers


I followed David when he joined Front Row Motorsports - turns out he's an OK dude


Another former Wolves digital media guy - now directing communications for....somebody who isn't the Wolves. His cat Cheese gets most of the good juju


The Timberwolves "Season Ticket Members" account. (I'm TOTALLY going to this feeding frenzy, by the way - I'm a big fan of free arena food!)


Former Timberwolf may not have tweeted twice since I followed him


Later mutated into the ghastly "voice of the fans" known as the Twolves Army (who I ended up unfollowing out of their sheer ghastliness)


The guy who ran these monthly shows got a better job in Las Vegas and suddenly these shows didn't happen any more. Ah, precious memories evoked through dead Twitter accounts I will follow forever...


Rapidly losing interest in this guy for some reason...

Most recently hired KARE meteorologist - currently getting very pregnant


I'll say this for both of our state's (DFL) Senators....they follow back


KARE reporter whose beat is puff pieces that win assloads of local Emmys - ah, old people are treasures, but so are very, very young people as well! (Everybody inbetween in Minnesota, however, can suck it)


Former Baltimore newspaper man, former WWE Creative cog, currently...hmm, I'm not sure WHAT he's doing these days. Tweeting? (Barely.)


Former (I say "former" a lot but it tells you how I ended up originally following these people) ticket rep with the Timberwolves, but quickly moved on to bigger and better things - first as a corporate rep for the Timberwolves, and now...I think he's part of some other giant sports marketing company? I thought he was selling Vikings tickets for the new stadium, but maybe he even outgrew THAT


Anthony Tolliver has something to do with this "faith-based" clothing company I should have unfollowed years ago, so I'll take care of that right now. Unbearable, constant advertisement of themselves. Is this what God really wants for us?


"Underfunded" Nationwide team (24/00) which may or may not still be running...I'll have to check - they clearly laid off their social media volunteer at the beginning of the season, for sure - and apparently their website person as well because that site is pretty bare


In another life, ran otherarena.com and went very far in the Microsoft company structure - now runs his own business and blogs a whole lot less - mainly trolls people on Facebook these days


Man, I used to LOVE Sebastian Telfair, and then he started this...I mean, it isn't even a clothing company; ostensibly it's a financial advice company but HE CAN'T STOP TWEETING ABOUT CLOTHES AND THIS FUCKING HASHTAG WHICH SUCKS AND I'm very satisfied to unfollow him. (Note to self: don't follow people whose feed is solely clothing company nonsense)

Wow, TWO unfollows in one group of ten! We're really getting somewhere now!

310 down, 230+ to go!

EVERYBODY loves Dave Blaney! But he sure doesn't tweet much!


There was a time (and it may still be happening) where literally everything Alex (who is a director) tweeted was retweeted by John Orquiola, so I thought "well, let's save a step." BY THE WAY, "House of Bodies" JUST came out on Blu-ray


Online privacy company - getting a lot of grief from Google over their Android add-on (which you can sideload, but no longer get from Google Play)


You know, I can unfollow these dudes. I think I was following them because I was waiting for their Android app to finally get released, but now that I have it, I have absolutely zero need to read any of the boring stuff they tweet about themselves and/or "quotes" - they have over 35 million followers; they won't miss me


I don't even watch the show anymore but, like MediaBuzz, they mostly tweet on Sunday mornings so I'm not excessively aggravated by their contribution to my timeline. I suppose I should start watching again, but....Brian Stelter, man, I dunno about that. Is he really an upgrade from Howie Kurtz - who actually wasn't all that great to begin with? Ah, my Sunday mornings...I used to watch so much political nonsense and now I'm down to 28 minutes of "The McLaughlin Group" and that's it - and THAT account doesn't even tweet! AND WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE 65 MPH SPEED LIMIT?


I suspect Betty White doesn't actually tweet, but I am enamored with the IDEA of Betty White tweeting, so I can't unfollow her.


Former Timberwolf, current....wow, I have no idea. I still like him a lot! Him and his girlfriend are super cute together.


Head honcho of Timberwolves digital - does a lot of "LinkedInny" stuff with his account I am not interested in but when you're living the dream, you do stuff like that. I guess? I think I follow him because he gives things away during the Timberwolves season. (I HOPE that's it - scanning through his recent tweets I'm not totally sure why I follow him. I think he'll pick up once the season starts...but I'm keeping a closer eye on him for a possible unfollow in a month or two)


Minneapolis Police Department Public Information Officers are excellent follows...well, WERE...looks like they've all consolidated and shut down. That's never a good thing, by the way - sure, you probably save some money somewhere but we end up with less juicy blotter material


Hmmm, maybe it's just attrition and lack of backfill? I'm sure we'll see @MPD_PIO later in this thread...

Formerly great user tracking service which went under after one of Twitter's anti-developer rate limiting schemes was enacted - now doesn't tweet much at all. There seem to be a lot of sad stories around people who built really cool stuff on top of Twitter only to get their knees cut out from under them. (How I have managed to keep my own Twitter things running is something of a minor miracle, but it helps that they all have a userbase of 1 instead of many)


He tweets like once every two years, but just knowing he's on Twitter makes me feel like this social media stuff - well, it's all right.


With @esbColors inactive AGAIN, THIS is your go-to account for a daily update of which lights are turned on at the Empire State Building - is it weird that I follow two accounts for this purpose, given that I'm at least two thousand miles away from that building? (MAYBE.)


I followed Josh when he was the third driver at Front Row - now competes for Phil Parsons and has a very unlikely Reddit following. (FULL DISCLOSURE: I also bought a #dogecar shirt - IT TOTALLY RULES)


Former GOP candidate for... shoot, I don't remember. I think he ran against Sen. Klobuchar. (Consults Wikipedia) Yep - he lost by 35 points. That's close... for a Republican! Still rails against fiscal stuff which (sadly) nobody cares about around here


Former producer at KARE, now works for TPT (which nobody's called KTCA in, like, 15 years)


Former KARE sports director, now bigtime anchorman. Hard to believe he was so reluctant to join Twitter as he now has over 2500 tweets since joining in May 2012


My college roommate's wife - she's a kick. She's more of a replier/retweeter than a tweeter, though


Childhood friend who never tweets - ha, this tweet is about ME!


Former Timberwolves Fan Experience rep - she's a dear. I have no idea what she's doing these days (beyond obviously rooting for the Vikings for some reason)

I work in that building and didn't realize there were Twitter accounts for that until this thread.

It's the block of ten one person has been waiting for...


Our current Timberwolves ticket rep - she's very nice and I have no idea why her Twitter is private


Former record store who became a recordmobile. I put their Kickstarter over the top and have a discount card...but I still haven't ever visited them. I think they track their comings and goings on Facebook now


Former online poker player who tweets about poker and barbecue and poker and poker - I wonder if he ever had an account here


City Pages used to do a lot more giveaways through this account - not so much now (although they occasionally share coupon codes for events). They only tweet a couple times a day, so they're safe from my unfollowing wrath...for now


Childhood crush - she doesn't tweet and gave up on me after a particularly noisy RAW, but why would I unfollow her?


Still on the Timberwolves as I type this, but maybe not for long!


Former Timberwolves....hmm, digital team I think? She's in LA now and not tweeting very much


Still on the Timberwolves as I type this! Recently endured a lot of ribbing when Purdue couldn't beat the Golden Gophers


Ah, AK. He is the worst - ABSOLUTE worst tweeter I follow. His horrible, unfunny, untimely, pandering, irrelevant, politically questionable "content" is undoubtedly compounded by the fact that he has amassed an army of favoriting idiots who trick him into thinking the (mostly) crap he tweets are things that should be encouraged and repeated. It's all I can do to not openly heckle, like, 75% of the tweets he craps out. I can't unfollow him because, Twitter aside, I actually like him and think he's a fine fellow. Also, it allows heckling from people we mutually follow to show up in my timeline. (Oh, hi, AK.)
That said, as I scroll back through his recent twitstream, he's been much less insufferable over at least the past month, so maybe real life has beaten most of the will to "entertain" out of him.
(I know, I know.... "...said the guy who tweets a hundred times during RAW" - we all have our own special hypocrisy to live)


Super cool New York street artist - I came for the adbusting, I stayed for the WWI gas maskery.

This'll be 350 by the time I'm done with this set...


I used to kill 90 minutes a week on Saturdays watching The Beltway Boys, The Journal Editorial Report and Fox Newswatch (and ANOTHER 30 or 60 watching "The Capital Gang" on CNN) - but only JER has survived, so now I waste my Saturdays watching whatever NASCAR is on. I only catch JER MAYBE half the time. Their Twitter sucks. "McLaughlin Group" is still the best (even though THEIR Twitter sucks as well)!


Two-time former Timberwolf - now with the Raptors and still super awesome


Karaoke friend - only recently rewent public


Former KARE sports utility man who spends a lot of time wondering why he's unemployed and why younger, more attractive people are getting the jobs he's applying for - between obsessive bouts of tweeting "obscure" statistics nobody's interested in during (Gophers, Vikings, Twins, Wild, Lynx, Timberwolves) games. I was ready to throw in the towel and unfollow him but now I kinda feel a compulsion to see if he ever gets employed again. (I will probably unfollow him the next time he egregiously does one of the things I've just complained about...oh, or rails on the same topic for like ten tweets in a row. Anyway, when that happens, he probably won't miss me.)


A good idea which the world didn't go along with


I once tweeted that it was CRIMINAL that our only female moderator Dutchie only had 5 followers on Twitter. She's now up to 6, at least...no thanks to me. Ask her about Penn State sometime!


Formerly at some other station, now telling the stories at KARE - not one of my favourites at KARE; can I say that? She's definitely no Jana Shortal.


Underfunded NASCAR driver may still make it big some day - just got a P4 at Talladega!


Thanks to one party rule, our current State Rep. has been in office literally almost as long as I've been alive.


No relation to above - Chaka is the best, not just because she retweeted me once (but it don't hurt)! She's a self-promoter, but like a one-tenth Sheila E. which is well under the bar for unfollowing. I'd like to see her live some time but she doesn't seem to hit this part of the country very often/ever.

Actually, that tweet led to a DM from a friend who told me that taking my account off private would help with that. I'm more amused now because I can see how followers change based on tweets. For example, tweeting that an Oscar Wilde statue looks like Hugh Grant leads to gaining six Oscar Wilde accounts as followers, until they figure out you'll never tweet about Oscar Wilde again and drop you. :)

I feel much the same. A likable guy who I have known for eons now, but his Twitter is just not for me. But lots of dudes are good dudes who I don't need to be following.

Politically, I think he and I are largely aligned, but even then, there was a lot of muttering "c'mon, man" on my part. But I'm sure I earn my share of that as well.

I have been letting you down in the heckling department of late. As I hinted at before, I muted AK some time ago for similar reasons. I haven't seen much in the way of commentary from the usual suspects so I'm thinking this may be a widespread condition.

AK's Twitter reminds me of a chat room of yore, though only if you were some how muted everyone in the room but one.

I spend a couple of plane flights reading the Twitter book, and one of the big philosophy schisms between the founders was about how Twitter should be used - one believed it's best as a news reporting device (in kind of a one to many method), another believed it was a tiny personal journal (one about one.) AK is doing something entirely different, using it as a group messaging service where it's only truly useful to be a follower if you're following a the rest of the group so you can actually follow the conversation. And what he's writing is just enough for me to know I'm missing a bunch of context but not enough for me to be interested in following a lot more people.

I think I do some of the same and I also like AK so I don't want to unfollow him and I haven't muted him yet - but I'm also a crazy obsessive who has to read every single message on my timeline and so need to purge old people when I want to add new people and he's near the cut line.

Libertarian candidate for president in 2012 - former (Republican) governor of New Mexico - I suspect he'll run again in 2016


Johnson's running mate appears to have given up Twitter - or at least this particular account...hmm, I wonder what "OAI" stands for and when he added that to his handle - ah, it's "Our America Initiative" (Johnson's PAC) - well, shows how much I'VE been paying attention!


Occasional keyboard player for fDeluxe and an extended member of the Peterson family (Paul's...cousin? Nephew once removed in law?), tours with all sorts of big acts, notably Kenny G. Has his own smooth jazzy CD which ... wasn't great. He's a big Timberwolves fan which I get a real kick out of - also a Vikings fan, but recorded a "Vikings Suck" song and stuck it on his Soundcloud...also hilarious. I love this guy!


"Did anybody go to the Butte, Montana house show last night? Please email hsmeltzer@juno.com because my other email is broken"


I guess Old Tom has gotten bored with Twitter - too bad, because at least he tweeted .... unlike a certain OTHER NBC anchor we could name...


KARE anchor - super gay - sorry, super GUY. Guy. I still have trouble believing that's his real name.


The much maligned producer of Craig Ferguson's "Late Late Show" - looks like he got hacked (I had to scroll through A LOT of Russian links to find his REAL last tweet)


One of the quieter KARE reporters on Twitter


Great artist and remixer who loves the smooth house sound, tasty licks, deep grooves, and not tweeting in 2014


Voice of the American Wrestling Federation - but his day job at the Minnesota Capital may be even more interesting - wrestling aside, he's a good follow for St. Paul scoops I wouldn't hear anywhere else.

I had a friend who worked at the brick and mortar version of this food truck - she's not there any more but I still plan on eating there some day. It's practically within walking distance from the house but I can never seem to get my butt over there.


I followed them the night of a concert, they followed me back, and we've been together ever since. I actually missed their last show which was like...two weeks ago maybe? Kim put some pictures on her Facebook.


Scott Christ's boxing account. I should probably unfollow it because I'm never watching any of the things he live tweets, but they're interesting enough in real time (if hell several hours later) for me to stick around.



One night, while watching "McLaughlin Group," I asked myself: "hey, are any of the panelists on Twitter?" And here they are. They'd balance each other out nicely except Pat tweets WAY more of his stories than Eleanor does.


Marcus Metropolis can be counted on to be awake when nobody else in Minneapolis is (or nobody except me, some nights) - I think I've met him in person, like, once - maybe twice. He's entertaining enough but some nights I do wish he'd find a significant other to spend some time off Twitter with.



Official photographer of the Minnesota Timberwolves and/or Target Center. I think he officially works for Getty Images? Anyway, obviously good for sharing photos


Official Twitter of the now defunct Japanese punk band...now (along with a few other accounts) tracks the comings and goings of frontman/musical genius Don Matsuo-- hey wait, is that a live bootleg coming out in November? WELL SIGN ME UP


I believe he actually won NASCAR Rookie of the Year one year - hasn't had a ride for quite a while (maybe even since he won that award?), and went through a bout of what felt from his tweets like he had some mental illness. He's no Brandon Whitt!


On a Timberwolves summer roster as a favor to Brandon Roy - what a great move THAT was - now tweets a lot about how Seattle doesn't have an NBA team. As if we weren't aware...but, hey, sorry that Kings deal didn't work out for ya! I could unfollow him but he stlil has a good line now and again and doesn't tweet all THAT much.

KARE chief meteorologist - I'll bet you're wondering when I'll run out of KARE talent to follow....I'm starting to wonder that myself...


Oh, shit, Louis ended up on the Cavaliers? Is he still there? (checks) Oh, shit, he's there AND he's wearing #89! I'll have to find some way to root for him while still hating the Cavaliers. That might be a challenge.


LynnB (as she was known then) hired me for my first tech support gig at Aimnet. She recently remarked that we've been friends for 20 years (actually, 19.5 - June 1995) and probably didn't mean "it's much easier to be friends when you're thousands of miles apart and only see each other on social media" but - damn, SHE'S back in Cleveland?! Everything's Cleveland today


Nero need to get off their collective butts and release me some music...or at least tweet about WHEN they plan on releasing me some music


Former Timberwolves front office guy now working the front office for the MN United Football Club. I have no idea what league they're in but it sounds like a fun time and I really should go watch a match some time. (Ha ha, will never happen)


Friend and/or roommate of a friend - he still gets mentions but never tweets


Former boyfriend and/or roommate of a friend (or maybe still...I guess I should ask), had a midnight slot on KFAI but I don't know if that's still happening. Hell, *I* should start volunteering at KFAI. I have all this free time, after all
(Yep, he's still on the KFAI schedule! He's woefully behind on his archives, but still... [affixes shades] kicking)


Did the WOW return happen anywhere besides Las Vegas public access? None of us ever talked about it so I'm guessing nobody saw it. You'd think they'd AT LEAST put their episodes out on YouTube, or Vimeo, or whatever Wrestlicious used...hey is Wrestlicious still around? I'm guessing not so much. Anyway, you wanted wrestling, here's some wrestling. Ha!


Current play-by-play voice of the Timberwolves. I never followed the old guy...who wasn't so great. Dave IS great. I don't even think Jim Petersen is carrying him! (But it's possible)
By the way, that media guide is ALSO pretty great. You should save it on your hard drive and refer to it throughout the NBA season.


"Director of Broadcasting" for the Timberwolves - I'm not TOTALLY sure what he does but he's good for Timberwolves tweets

You know how NASCAR has the big-time "A" teams? This is, like, an "E" team. I'm always drawn to the underdogs, but these guys are BARELY dogs.


Lily was the last Friendster holdout and may have also been the last original Myspace holdout. She gave up on Facebook. Fortunately, she still tweets and she's ALL over Instagram. Many of the friends of friends I mention are probably really friends of Lily. She's always doing fun stuff hanging out with amazing people who aren't me. If I sound jealous...I probably don't leave the house enough.


I have no idea who this guy is. I think I followed him because he heckled the "Timberwolves Army" and I liked all the other one liners he very rarely tweets. I'll keep following him, naturally.



THE BEST. Group of Spanish fans who are nutso for the Timberwolves. This year, their hilarious video was a reworking of the "Beverly Hills, 90210" opening credits - go find it. Unfortunately it looks like they've left Twitter so we're left with other people tweeting their video links out instead of getting it straight from the source.


ALSO THE BEST. Color commentator for the Timberwolves and not afraid to ... whatever the opposite of "dumbing it down" is on commentary. Listening to him will give you an education in basketball. He's also assistant coach for the Lynx, so he has perspective from the coaching angle as well. He's so good I fear we'll lose him to a "better gig" some day but hopefully we can keep him occupied here in Minny between the Wolves AND the Lynx and he won't be able to straddle those worlds in some other, larger city.


I love the Pope! Who doesn't love the Pope? (Everybody who responds to him, it feels like) Anyway, it's only a tweet a day, usually, way early in the morning US time, so he's an almost perfect follow. (Benedict wasn't bad, either - I followed the account back when he started it)


I probably followed them when they had some other name and a relevant product but now their clutter is totally worthless to me and I am delighted to unfollow them.


Minneapolis blogger and privacy advocate (amongst other causes) I started following when I was running for mayor (I think?) - he gets on about super unimportant stuff sometimes, but the IMPORTANT stuff he goes on about is really important.


TED ON SPORTS. That's about it.


Local label releasing really cool unearthed archival stuff, most of which I can't afford to buy

Hmmm, I'm on a roll - if I can just do another set I'll be at 400! We'll see.

Collier mainly sticks to Facebook, but if he ever tweets...I'll probably see it!


Experimental artist from Finland which I'm a little obsessed with and which I'd know next to nothing about if not for Twitter and Facebook


The man behind fDeluxe, formerly The Family, formerly of The Time (Purple Rain version) and also currently one half of LP Music (with fellow fDeluxe-r Eric Leeds). Also, he loves THE LORD! I could do worse for a role model if I were looking for a 50 year old guy to be my role model.


Former Timberwolf...I have no idea what he's up to now - maybe back in France?


I don't know why I follow this one - probably as a favor to @DrPepper. They tend to run together for me and I have such a great love for Dr Pepper (the product family) that I don't mind seeing their tweets. I'm actually FINALLY getting a shirt from one of their "be one of the first 100 retweets" so it's TOTALLY paying off to follow them!!!!!!


I never click on any of his links any more but I do feel better knowing that Ron's still fighting some sort of good fight, even as I promise to never give him another dime of my own. (That's very Libertarian of me, right?)


Old-timely Internet wrestling cat was pretty late to Twitter, but when he followed me, I definitely had to follow him back. He probably deserves to have more than 30 followers.


The Timberwolves public address announcer doesn't announce much on Twitter.


Best known as frontman for Dead or Alive, Pete spends most of his time THESE days taking questions about his plastic surgery and advocating for trans folks. I've followed him for what feels like forever and this is MAYBE the first musical stuff he's been able to talk about - and even THAT is just an update of one of his earlier releases. I think....I think I just unfollowed him. Yep. Sorry, Pete - I know you and your husband will be very happy either way, so I'll be happier if I don't have to see a hundred retweets of people showing me your new/latest face. (I also suspect I'll still see a lot of his tweets via El Fano's retweets - but we'll see)


He's tweeted ten times in three years and still has a Timberwolves photo for an avatar despite now being on the Sixers (and wearing #88). Obviously I'll follow him forever.

Hooray, 400! I can ALMOST make out a light at the end of the tunnel! (Current "real time" following count: back to 535)
