Famous musicians (and not) using Twitter

A couple weeks ago, Wayward writer Greg Franklin wrote about attending a writing workshop in Seattle with Long Winters man John Roderick. In it, Greg praised Roderick's Twitter, and, now that I've finally looked at it, I gotta agree. It is pretty good.

1:06 a.m. yesterday: "Before interviewing the Master Musicians of Joujouka I went to the Russian baths and had a schvitz. Then we ate lamb. Take that, Paul Simon."

Recently, Pitchfork did a roundup of other musicians on Twitter, including Roderick, Lily Allen, Colin Meloy, MC Hammer, a fake Nick Cave and others.

I'm not much of a Twitter warrior, though I do exploit it for the sake of this blog.

However, I'd sure like to know what musicians, local and nonlocal, famous and almo'famous, you're following. Or that you are.

Others of note:

John Cleese

John Hodgman

Diplo

Lt. Commander Data

Coldplay

Geordi LaForge (new tattoo, yo!)

Rufus Wainwright (never updates)

William Shatner
