Barack Obama
John Mayer
Rob Thomas
Chris Jericho
Nick Barnett
Ryan Grant
Jason Segel

Those are the main ones I follow, they usually always bring the goods. Mayer is by far my favorite to follow, Jericho is a close second.

Joakim Soria, closer for the KC Royals

Sam Mellinger, KC Star blogger
Joe Sheehan, Baseball Prospectus

So far the highlight of my Twitter experience was during the Hall of Fame Game, when I noticed Alex Mortensen on the sidelines in the first quarter and Tweeted @mortreport to see if that was his son, and getting a response back. I love Twitter.

Right now I have 109 following. Mostly NASCAR, and football people, with an odd celeb here or there.

Yeah you just have to find the ones who are presonally tweeting instead of having it be a publicist (which the Hendrick guys do). A sampling.

Michael Waltrip is @mw55
Kevin Harvick is @KevinHarvick
Juan Montoya is @jpmontoya
Ryan Newman is @RyanNewman39
Brad Coleman (who occasionally drive the 20 in the Nationwide Series) is @BradCColeman
Kenny Wallace is @Kenny_Wallace
Elliott Sadler is @Elliott_Sadler
Kyle Petty is @kylepetty
Bobby Labonte is @Bobby_Labonte

and she's not a NASCAR driver but Danica Patrick is @DanicaPatrick

SamoaJoe: "Just found a bevy of old PRIDE DVDs. Sakuraba vs. Renzo Gracie was such a good fight way better than the historic 90 min Royce Match."

I follow a girl I'm friends with (and who I'm completely and totally in love with and I only signed up because she did first and I just NEED to know what's she's thinking, even if it pretty much always is "Go Pens!"), one of her friends who started following me first, two super-nerdy guys I hang out with (and I say that with all the respect in the world) and our own Brian P. Dermody. And that's it. I should probably add more people, but I'm lazy and I don't really like it anyway.

EDIT: That said, I am so following Tracy Morgan now.

After a few weeks on Twitter, I am following five people/groups. One is Dana WhiteUFC, Funnyordie, AtthemoviesTV, Around The Horn and one other site.

No one is following me, but since I have never felt the need to post anything, I wouldn't really want anyone to follow me.

The closest I come to this at all is that I have the Twitter stuff from a couple of local restaurants RSS'd to my email. They send out things about nightly specials & exotic fish they've gotten. That's it.

I followed Glenn Beck for a while just for the laughs. Eric Bischoff's political rantings are also fairly funny occasionally.

One I have added since I last posted is Rivers Cuomo from Weezer. He posts lots of links to his music and if you like Weezer, you like following him. Disclaimer - Weezer is my third favorite band after The Ramones and The Clash.
