We rely on Twitter for everything from being the first to get breaking news to discovering local and global trends, from keeping up to date with events to getting a laugh from our fave celebs.  Over time feeds can become a bit yawn and need a little revitalisation to keep things interesting. Every Friday, which we have now re-christened #FollowFriday, we will suggest our top three Twitter accounts to pump up your feed and put some pow back into your Twitter experience.

And while you’re at it, why not follow the author of this article – @grainneglenny
