Twitter's Top 10 Twin Cities must-follow journalists


fter reading the excellent analysis of recent Twitter popularity polls written by Hart Van Denburg, and suffering through yesterday's Twitter denial of service hack attack, I got to thinking about my own list of the most important Twitter people in town, based on what I (and presumably you, dear reader) are most interested in: Twin Cities news.

Follow my gaze on a journey deep, deep into your navel ...

10. @NickColeman: The Strib's most acerbic columnist, unfiltered.

9. @JasonBarnett & @Chuckumentary: The UpTake boys as a twofer.

8. @stephenhero: MSP mag gadabout.

7. @bcollinsmn: MPR radio stalwart with a cynic's eye on the future.

6. @jojeda: Pi-Press social networking guru who literally wrote the book on Twitter.

5. @dbrauer: The MinnPost scribe chronicles the Strib's downfall one tweet at a time.

4. @carr2n: T.C. expat and NYTimes media critic David Carr.

3. @Lileks: Indefatiguable Strib humorist is just as funny in 140 characters.

2. @andrewzimmern: Foodie celeb lives fascinating life in any medium.

1. @DeRushaJ: WCCO futurist and winner of CP's Best Online Personality. He's also on the verge of getting his own day. Mark it down on your calenders!
