Top Five OC Artists to Follow on Twitter
These days, you can't go online without reading about Kanye West letting fans know about his latest drama, or 50 Cent on either how lonely he is or his hilarous racist rants--all on Twitter. And while no local artist is as candid as Kanye or Fitty, here are some of the best OC acts to follow on Twitter.
No Doubt @nodoubt
What you'll find Cam pics from Gwen Stefani, random news from the band (Adrian ran the NYC marathon), Tom's new baby (due early 2011), updates on how the album is doing (they have eight songs done!).
Why you shoud follow them It's the best kind of shared, official Twitter account--full of juicy tidbits and personable.
Our only complaint Update more frequently, please!
Jeffree Star @JeffreeStar
Josh Freese @joshfreese
What you'll find This Long Beach resident, AKA the busiest drummer in the world (he drums for Weezer, the Vandals, A Perfect Circle, Devo and Nine Inch Nails--among other bands), tweets about his high profile gigs with Yo Gabba Gabba, Weezer and APC, and jokes about the Beatles on iTunes--and then there are really personal tweets (like, his Volvo on sale or the Twitpic of his wife giving birth in the delivery room). Best of all, he updates FREQUENTLY.
Why you should follow him Freese's Twitter account is the 140-character, virtual equivalent of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. It's the best place for insider music news.
Our only complaint None. I wish all Twitter accounts were like this.
