When people join Twitter one of the first things they realise is that it’s only as good as the people they are following. A few celebrities come up and in particular those with gazillions of followers or believers. Kardashians aside, there are a few which Twitter may even suggest. @StephenFry and Jonathan Ross @wossy were early adopters of the site and really got into it.
So today, inspired by Emma Watson’s awesome use of Twitter to found her book club, OurSharedShelf, our inaugural Gingham Cloud 9 is a round up of celebrities who are great to follow on Twitter but you may have missed.
@EmWatson – funny, likeable, relatable but still getting things done.
2 @JamesBlunt – the British songwriter regularly pulls out cutting one-liners which shut down trolls fast.
3 @OliviaWilde – tweets hilariously e.g. “in a thousand years archeologists will dig up tanning beds and think we fried people as punishment.”
4 @JamieOliver – Don’t worry, the Naked Chef doesn’t fill up your timeline with pictures of his lunch.
5 @EddieIzzard – you’d expect wit from the clever comic and he doesn’t disappoint.
6 @annakendrick47 – Pitch Perfect, as you’d expect from the witty actress.
7 @MisterEdByrne – the former voice of the Carphone Warehouse is brilliant and we won’t hear a word against him.
8 @EvaLongoria – Working with the French brand Cointreau, the former Desperate Housewife is anything but, and using her social media cachet to bring attention to the her charity, the Eva Longoria Foundation, which “helps Latinas build better futures for themselves and their families through education and entrepreneurship.”
9 @ZachBraff – the Scrubs star loves Twitter and his fans and it shows.
Are there any we’ve missed from the list? Let us know.
