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.

November has been a rollercoaster of unpredictable highs and lows where the weather is concerned. When you wear your woolliest, warmest jumper, the sun is bound to glare down fro hours but when you take a chance and leave that jumper at home, it pours from the heavens leaving you looking like a wet fish all day.
