    Thanks for this great list. I find that using the search function is a good way to find people to follow. And as you say, a fair proportion will follow you back.

    I read somewhere that Twitter is being increasingly used as a search engine like Google. And no wonder.

    Just like with that search engine, you’ll find the best keyword combinations to give you what you need. It’s just a matter of playing around with them a bit to find what they are.
