Read my posts with the following stupid accent: N?yfb
it's best for following breaking news stories and finding the best background articles, so you need to follow a journalism geek

I follow an Australian radio journalist called Mark Colvin, @colvinius. He spends a lot of time on dialysis (a legacy of years spent as a foreign correspondent in Africa) & posts links to all manner of interesting stories & people. I was a day or 2 ahead of the Australian media when following the News Of The World phone-hacking story from London, because of him posting updates from www.guardian.co.uk.

If you can find a few people like that, Twitter quickly becomes far more time-consuming than you can reasonably afford...
