Good People to Follow #1 - Film

I struggle a bit with Twitter. Like the concept but like many people have issues with the lack of regulation. Always end up knocking it on the head because of their attitude to moderation and bots.

The only way of regularly using it and not wanting to punch yourself in the face, i think, is by following no more than a couple of hundred accounts, getting your political discourse elsewhere (some might disagree on this) and not having the app on your phone.

I want to sort of use it sparingly and only follow accounts of people in or linked to fields i’ve got a recreational interest in. Thought it might be an idea to do occasional threads where people can recommend good follows on certain subjects.

To start with, given we’re doing the big film poll - good film-related Twitter accounts - decent film writers and pundits, film websites, blogs, magazines and podcasts, cool directors and film buffs, etc…?

(I’ll do one thread a week. Feel free to PM any subjects you’d like to do, etc. Apologies if it’s a very shit idea).

I follow @ubuweb on Twitter for avant garde film & video. It tells you when they add stuff to their very comprehensive website.
