Twitter for TV lovers: who to followFrom Armando Iannucci and Graham Linehan to Mathew Horne and Katy Brand, Tim Lusher picks out the best TV folk to follow
Full story here.
Jonathan Ross @wossy – Much of what the chatshow host shares with his 434,000 followers is predictably about films and his TV guests, but his always upbeat thread also gives a sweet-natured insight into his home life: dodging his kids’ difficult homework questions, waking up to find the dogs asleep on his head or wondering how to dress for their walkies (“Ralph Lauren or Lady Gaga?”).
Armando Iannucci @alannucci – The comedy genius behind The Thick of It has been busy posting trailers and teasers for the latest series of the political satire, as well as sharing his views with nearly 25,000 followers: he’s “incalculably depressed” at the thought of a Cameron government, and thinks the “gob-hammeringly insensitive” Ben Bradshaw proves we are entering “the Dawn of the UberTwat”. TTOI fans will be glad to know that the cast and writers of the show are big Twitterers. Junior adviser Ollie Reeder, aka @mrchrisaddison, is consistently funny (“Ikea. Sunday. I am full of meatballs and loathing”), as is “swearing consultant” @ianmartin. You can also follow @rebeccafront, who plays new minister Nicola Murray, and writers @jessearmstrong1 and @simonblackwell.
