Ladies who tweet

Our favourite women to follow on Twitter

In celebration of micro-blogging site Twitter's 5th birthday in March, we compiled a list of our top ten famous women who use the site to update us on their lives and work in 140 characters or less. However, we couldn't have predicted just how much of a talking point our list would be.

Following a massive response on our own Twitter feed (in which listee Lauren Laverne offered to sketch her favourite tweeter to ensure her inclusion on the list), we asked our followers to let us know their favourite ladies who tweet. There were hundreds of suggestions, but we managed to whittle them down to just ten which we've added to the list.

So, from humerous tweeters to advice-givers, here's our (and your) ultimate list of women to follow on Twitter...
