    true, but surely theres a few 'celebs' who regularly update and are actually themselves. will definitely add charlie brooker

    chrisdjmoyles

    David Haye

    how on earth do you find people on there? I just signed up and searched for stephen fry but just got loads of stuff about him ... how do I find him?! It look sreally confusing at the moment - also can it be set to just UK do you know?!

    your following fearne cotton for that alone you should be banned from twitter.

    it's really easy to unfollow her.

    I'll throw in my populist recommendation twitter.com/Aly…ano

    she actually tweets stuff that is usually worthwhile reading. some great links but it's just a case of searching for people stuff your interested in. Mine is full of sci stuff, politics and football.

    one final recommendation is twitter.com/opt…joe posts some great football stats.

    Tomorrow they do something called followfriday where you are mean to recommend people to follow that you enjoy.

    People you are following will do this so you can find people that way. Also during popular events people will tweet as it happens e.g when Liverpool are playing.

    Just type Liverpool in the search box and I'm sure you will find other Liverpool supporters to follow etc

    can you limit it to info from the Uk at all?

    You only follow people that you choose so just choose to follow people from the UK.

    As soon as I signed up, I typed in some search stuff and got loads of posts from America - just wondered if it was possible to limit to UK posts only ...

    yeah and you can also change the twitter trends on the right from worldwide to the uk although 90% of the time the uk trending topics seem to be whatever is on itv2 or channel 4.

    actually william shatner is my favourite, not only is he james t kirk and tj hooker(legends) but he signs every tweet with my best bill, evry single one. coolest guy ever.

    You are using the "Find People" link? I think you might need to sign in first.

    Does it cost money if you use your mobile? Say you get "30 tweets a day sent to your phone" does this cost money? Also, if I tweet "20 times a day", will I have used 20 of my text msg allowance, or will I still have to pay?

    Just follow who you are interested in. I like the f1 so follow people such as jake humphrey, Jenson button, chandhok, James Allen. Also have a few blogs and forums followed. I don't really like those that update too regulary as they seem to hog my entire Twitter feed up lol.
