Do you twitter? If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Twitter is a social media site where you “follow” other people who twitter and read each other’s updates. Twitter users create updates, called “tweets” of 140 characters or less. It’s a form of micro-blogging.

Unless someone puts a lock on his updates, you can follow anyone on twitter you want to. Once you follow someone, you can see all his updates, but he can’t see yours unless he follows you back.

There are lots of foodies on Twitter including celebrity chefs and the writers of really good food blogs.

Why would you want to follow say a celebrity chef on Twitter? You can get updates on personal appearances, recipes, and sometimes just fun information about them. And last week, when Jamie Oliver prepared dinner for those at the G-20 Summit, we got updates like this:

right guys,gonna crack on now,lots of security checks and that to do,i'll put the menu and the photos of the dishes on my diary page soon

So if you twitter, or you want to twitter, you might want to follow some of the following. The links take you directly to their Twitter pages.
