You can tell a lot about a person based on who they religiously follow on Twitter — or least that’s the driving idea behind this new weekly feature. Every Monday we’ll ask an influential web editor to share some of his or her most prized feeds with you, along with a few exemplary tweets that will illustrate why you’ll soon be following along too. Our hope is that you’ll get a tiny glimpse inside the creative minds of some of online media’s brightest stars — and a more interesting Twitter feed of your own to boot!
Our latest batch of suggestions comes to you from Neha Gandhi, the pop culture-obsessed (not to mention style savvy) Deputy Editor of one of our all-time favorite fashion and beauty sites, Refinery29. Click through to check out her interesting picks, and be sure to follow @nehaintown as well as @refinery29 on Twitter to keep up-to-date the latest style news and gossip, emerging trends, and where to buy what.
Michael Showalter’s Wet Hot American Summer is one of my all-time favorite movies. And his mom happens to have taught one of my all-time favorite college classes. His feed, of late, involves a lot of talk of Björk and pizza, with some political repartee with Michael Ian Black thrown in. What’s not to love?
Like every other editor on the planet, I am now obsessed with #RealTalk From Your Editor. And Ann Friedman , the Executive Editor at GOOD and the woman behind the Tumblr, offers a pithy, accurate account of life as a top editor on Twitter.
I follow Molly Ringwald for all of the obvious reasons. But also: She tells stories of the real-life guy who inspired Duckie. And poses and answers questions like “Which Beatle would have been the best tweeter?”
Interviewing Simon Doonan is one of the most wonderful experiences a fashion writer can have. He’s entirely candid, effortlessly hilarious, and unfiltered, always. His Twitter feed offers more of the same. A little heavy on the RTs, but nonetheless, insightful.
Chris Kelly is an SNL writer, so his feed is endlessly entertaining. But more importantly, he wrote this retroactive live-blogging of his 572 listens of Adele’s “Someone Like You.” And if you weren’t following him on Twitter, you might have missed it. #obsessed.
