I wanted to create a topic to as a potential list of professional chefs with Twitter accounts.

I follow Tyler Florence, Jamie Oliver, Daniel Patterson, Chris Cosentino.

Two other twitter accounts of note are Foodporn, and Ruth Reichl .

Its pretty fun getting updates on whats happening in the food world.

Anyone know of other food tweeters?

There are a lot of other people in food on twitter (some are not chefs) - I (@daisy17) also follow Amanda Hesser, Gail Simmons, Martha Stewart, Richard Blais, Mark Bittman, Pete Wells, Louisa Chu, Kevin Zraly, Michael Ruhlman, David Leite, David Leibovitz. Some of them are on egullet too.

I heart twitter.

Are a lot of non-food professional egulleters on it?

twitter is asynchronous, meaning you can follow without being followed back. Some folks lock their updates only to people who have permission, but most folks live in the open and let anyone follow them. You don't have to be official friends.

How do you leave a comment for people? Either it's very early in the morning, or I cannot find it!

Hello all.

I've only been registered for 4 years now, and while this is my first post, I'm sure you'll appreciate that it's been worth the wait.

Or not.

Anyway, just to add to the Twitter discussion, I'd committed - during a somewhat inebriated moment - that I would Twit (tweet? twat?) a recipe in real time, ie as I'm cooking it.

All I need now is to wait until cheese on toast comes onto the home menu.

I'll see how these other more illustrious names are doing before I make a final decision on taking the leap and allowing the great unwashed into my holiest of holies (the kitchen of course, what else could it be?)

And to repeat, Hello all.

When I saw this thread, I assumed that it was prompted by today's NYT article on the subject. But, no, as usual, eG was ahead of the crowd.

I have a more basic question: for those of you already on board, what makes following a twitter thread (is that the right word?) worth it? At the risk of sounding anti-new technology, do I really want/need more messages beeping at me during the course of a day? I can't keep up with my emails or my podcast subscriptions as it is. The NYT article makes a good case for how twitter can be useful. But for everyone who recommends a twitter thread, can you tell us more about what you like about it and why it's worth subscribing.

David Lebovitz's Twitter feed is entertaining--tongue-in-cheek, down to earth, and usually about Paris or baking, or both.

I only Twitter online (not from a phone), so I avoid any message-alert beeping...but not the procrastinating. :rolleyes:

I was "following" Jamie Oliver until the last update. Good grief. Please don't ask - if you need to check it out for yourself, feel free to do so. Love his cookbooks, love his food, but sometimes...is it grade 6 all over again?
