The Saturday List #171 - The Top Ten Tweeters to Follow in the London Borough of Barnet!

Do you "Do Twitter"? Sadly, I do. It has virtually ruined my life, but don't let that put you off. I spend far too much time poring over the most banal of pronouncements from all matter of semi-vegetative tweeters, who think they are Oscar Wilde reborn. However this week, as often happens, one of my friends set me a challenge. It may or may not come as a surprise, but most of my friends never discuss my blog with me. I am quite unaware of how many read it. One friend, who I was having a beer with, said "I've just started doing Twitter. Who are the best people in the Borough to follow?". I said "That's easy, the bloggers...." and before I could continue, he cut me off. He said "I don't mean all of the people doing political stuff. I mean 'normal human beings' ". I was a tad surprised to find out my friend does not consider me to be a normal human being, but I guess that being a "Normal Human being" was never high on my priority list. So here is my Top Ten list of people who tweet, and a few are even "Normal Human Beings!". Please don't be too offended if I missed you off, it just means that we are so spoiled for great tweeters and I wanted a good cross section of both Normal and Abnormal human beings. I fyou follow the Tweets of the week series on a Sunday, you'll already be familiar with the work of most of these marvellous people!
