40 Twitter accounts you just have to follow right now

Twitter can be a powerful and wonderful tool.

He can educate you, enlighten you, make you laugh and keep you in-know. But you have to make sure the count is correct. Otherwise, your channel can easily be swamped with boring, useless tweets, and then before you know it, you've never checked Twitter, not using your power.

To help get you on the right track, Pocket Lint has a rounded list of influential, famous and entertaining accounts to follow. Some of them are prominent politicians, while others are celebrities, parody accounts, etc. Keep in mind that this is not a complete list. We're just trying to get you started.

If you complete all of these accounts, we can guarantee that you will be filled with all the latest and occasional news. And in between it all, you just get to giggle or be surprised or inspired. After all, this is what Twitter really is. Let us know in the comments if you think anyone else should be included.
