Twitter has become a veritable mountain of over-sharers famous and not, a tough place to differentiate the interesting from the banal, from the faux from the legit. I’m not an avid Tweeter, but it’s become part of a work/life survival program, akin to knowing Excel shortcuts or how to conference call.
It’s a brave new world I’m not willing to break down at the moment, but I’ll steer you one way and that is to the best model tweeters worth ruining your follow to follower ratio for. Of course you want Twitpics of Karl and Steven Meisel behind the camera, and covert looks at editorials before they hit newsstands, and funny banter between mannequins and all access backstage passes via iPhones and Blackberries.
