The team over at Photoshelter have compiled a great list of ten Twitter lists photographers should follow.
The lists are varied and cover all manner of useful groups of people – not just those making multimedia, but also those commissioning it studying it, selling it, and consulting about it.
The ten lists are certainly worth looking through, but in my opinion following all of them is probably overkill. Twitter can be a huge timesink if you’re not careful, and adding a bunch of lists to your Twitter account means creating a fresh pile of inboxes you have to keep watching. Which means more time mindless link-clicking, and less time out in the real world taking pictures.
So my advice would be: look at the lists, and click through to the Twitter accounts of the individuals you find on them to see if they are the kind of people you’d like to add as contacts. Twitter means different things to different people, but for me the most useful contacts are the ones with a high signal:noise ratio; the people who don’t Tweet much, but always Tweet something useful when they do.
