Default Who to follow on Twittters?

Just joined twitter to follow athletes and for news. I never plan on actually saying anything but I thought I'd ask, who are some good people to follow?

I know nothing about twitter and I don't really even know how to do it but I do like seeing what some people have to say.

I don't use it to follow people specifically. I make searches and save them. Then if I want to see if there is anything I can go back and click my saved search and read all the tweets that are returned.

Good way get info.

No, that's a stupid way to do it. Follow a bunch of NFL sources and athletes. You get a constant feed of interesting information. It's like magic.

Just start following a few, and every time there's a retweet of something that interests you, follow that one. I have accumulated about 60 solid NFL ones. (And if one starts to get on your nerves or fill up your feed with stuff you're not interested in, unfollow it.)

There's no privacy issue or "friends." It's just like an RSS feed you're following.

At least follow Schefter and the Denver Post. After a while, there's a glorious feed of constantly moving info. Especially on gameday.

After a while, you get to where you think "It would be exhausting to have to read a whole article. I'm glad all the good quotes and facts have already been tweeted, right when they happened."

You actually bring up a good point to clarify. I make search lists, not stupid, but I also find the authority twitter users and follow them.

To each his own.

Bronco_Sacco is kind of interesting. He goes on these spurts. Where he has this deep thought and it takes about 20 tweets to get out and its all philosophical. Then he goes away for a week.

He called out a person interviewing for an internship about how they came dressed and acted. Which is hilarious because you know the candidate found out!

Can I ask what you mean by search lists? Or can you describe it? I'm curious.

@IAOFM - I think the best Broncos blog on the internet.
@PostBroncos
@Dmac1043 gets some pretty good stuff up a lot of the time.

If you want some laughs, follow @KingLaserface, @NotJayCutler, and @KingNeckbeard. Oh, and @xmasape and @kissmesuzy

Only follow the athletes if you absolutely hate yourself and want to lose faith in humanity. They are the worst follows.

You should follow me @ds_perry

As far as Broncos feeds, everyone in here pretty much nailed it. Another good one is @MaseDenver. He runs the CBS quick updates on twitter.

Also, the Iron Sheik (@the_ironsheik) is an absolute must-follow.

For a good laugh check out @oldmansearch. This dude told his dad (in his 80's) that twitter was how you searched for things on the internet. So randomly he'll just tweet out something random and hilarious. Definitely go read his old tweets, it's awesome.
