If you only have 140 characters, they should be worth reading, no? Depends on whose Twitter feed you read. Time Magazine has just published a list (of course they did) of the top 140 Twitter feeds around the country. No, sorry, neither Charlie Sheen nor Kim Kardashian made it -- Neil Gaiman is #1, Sarah Palin #4, Lady Gaga #7 -- but a number of food relevant people did. Marion Nestle, whose tweets some of us read as religiously as Stephen Colbert's (#12), came in at #94. Michael Pollan ranked #62.

It's an interesting list: Margaret Atwood (#37); Instant Netflix (#104). Turn the page to see all 140. Of course, we'd be very interested to know who you think they missed. If for no other reason than we can follow them if we don't already. We vote for Jonathan Gold's Twitter feed, but we're admittedly biased. (Final note: it's good to know Harry Reid and Lord Voldemort have separate Twitter feeds.)
