I love Twitter. I like how it's one of the best ways to share content and thoughts with everyone else. However, following too many people can put too much of a strain on you when checking for updates. I, like I'm sure many others do, have a few people I make sure to read each update I come across. Here's a list of those few I do my best to keep up with.
Note that when I say "people" on Twitter I also mean organizations as well as individuals.
Alexis is probably most famous as being cofounder of reddit, but he's definitely doing some amazing work these days. From writing his own book (you bet I got this the day it came out) to hosting an entrepreneurial show on The Verge - Small Empires, he's definitely one to follow and I'm always excited to see what he's up to next.

If you're interested in business or leadership at all, this magazine and site has a lot of great articles that I've found useful. Their site practicing minimalism and very easy to navigate also helps.

If you're into technology at all, then this name should at least be familiar to you. Coming from the old (and awesome) days of TechTV via the show The Screen Savers, he's also the founder of Digg and now currently works with Google Ventures helping to find other awesome web start ups.

Yep, the wife of Kevin Rose. She's fairly well known herself for starting a food blog - Summer Tomato (whom I happen to have found from the person below) and from there her own book - Foodist. Darya is definitely one of the best I've come across in terms of breaking down the science of healthy food into a way that is easily understandable. If anyone I meet has questions on food I always point them to her.

Famous for his books - Four Hour Workweek, Four Hour Body, and Four Hour Chef, I definitely consider Tim to be a modern day Renaissance Man. From starting his own nutritional company to becoming a tango and kickboxing champion, Tim has tons of experiences and he freely gives his advice away on his blog.

This can't be a post on a development blog without a developer, could it? I consider John, cofounder of Wintellect, to be one of the best when it comes to doing anything with .NET. This is the guy who got me interested in performance and debugging. When Microsoft has them come in to teach their developers, I make sure to listen on what they have to say.
