Anyone who uses Twitter on a regular basis will have seen the #followfriday hashtag, in which people recommend other people worth following. In the spirit of things, here are Day and Night’s current favourite tweeting musicians and artists.
Who: Marina & the Diamonds (@marinasdiamonds)
Why?: As well as being a talented and gorgeous individual, burgeoning pop star Marina is also a genuinely nice person. It’s interesting to watch such a person become a pop star, which trust us, despite her tweet below, she will be by summer 2010.
Sample Tweet: “Can’t wait to be deemed the failure of 2010 ya’ll! Off to Hollywood to become an uber hot socialite now! Byyyyye!”
Who: Adebisi Shank (@adebisishank)
Why?: Humorous tweets from the Dublin frenetic rock trio taking in occasional reports from tours in Japan.
Sample Tweet: “Anyone get the Mr Tayto book? Was he really molested by the Monster Munch Cyclops?”
Who: John Mayer (@johncmayer)
Why?: Despite his music having less appeal than emptying the contents of a 40-year old bedpan over yourself, Mr .Mayer’s tweets are self-aware, tongue-in-cheek and thoroughly without the ego of a pop star.
Sample Tweet: “Sitting in a restroom stall. There is a man in the stall beside me. We’re both waiting for the other to leave. Entering minute 12.”
Who: Katy Perry (@katyperry)
Why?: Love her or hate her, Perry is the definition of spunky. She has 1.4 million followers and generally uses that power to post pictures of herself, her nails and giant ice cream sundaes.
Sample Tweet: “Dear driver, u think u just got away with a silent vomitous FART in the car BUT unbeknownst to u I just put u on blast on my twitter. Booya.”
Who: Calvin Harris (@calvinharris)
Why?: Famous for throwing tantrums on Twitter and generally being quite engaging, Harris most recently broke the news that he was in fact the stage invader on X-Factor last week.
Sample Tweet: “Was just thrown out of X-Factor for jumping onstage during Jedward with a pineapple on my head..”
