If your Twitter feed is feeling a bit ‘same old, same old’, it’s time to update your follows. Next week, The Independent and PeerIndex release the Twitter 140 list of the UK’s most influential tweeters, but here Stylist highlights its pick of the best new talent to trail

Jude Rogers

She has fewer followers than our favourite tweeting journo Caitlin Moran, but shares much of the same wit. The Welsh writer shares media gold, quips about her latest interviewees and delivers nostalgic pop references.

@juderogers

Helen Lewis

The deputy editor of the New Statesman is the woman to follow if you want a witty, feminist take on the everything from politics and the malecontrolled media to Game Of Thrones and fishing for halibut.

@helenlewis

Megan Amram

Like Sarah Silverman, the LA-based comedy writer is smart, self-deprecating and loves a risqué tweet. Follow her for quips such as: “Things are getting serious with my boyfriend: I’m about to meet his wife!”

@meganamram

Alice Levine

Want to know about the best new bands before everyone else? Radio 1’s latest recruit is an essential follow. She also shares overheard conversations and eclectic musings like: “Hands up if you love a butter bean?”

@alicelevine

Abigail King

Having given up her career as a doctor for a life of travel to far-flung locales, Abigail’s clever insights and inpsiring Instagram shots will make you want to ditch the day job for a jaunt to the coast of Costa Rica.

@insidetravellab

Emma Green

One for movie buffs, Emma works in film distribution so her feed is chock full of news on the latest releases, events, and industry secrets. She tweets archive film artworks and links to trailers and deleted scenes.

@emmafgreen

Will Broome

The illustrator has worked with Marc Jacobs and Topshop, but when he’s not doodling, he tweets funnies often based on TV . “‘A bed of rice’... ie: some rice #Masterchef,” – just one of his 44,000 and counting.

@williambroome

Ann Colvile Somma

New York-based Ann Colville Somma works in beauty and fragrance development and is the ultimate industry insider. Follow her to get the lowdown on the latest brands and the best products you’ve never heard of..

@cultofpretty

Nick Sutton

An editor at BBC Radio 4, Nick regularly tweets the next day’s newspaper front and back pages with the brilliantly handy hashtag #tomorrowspaperstoday, saving us all a trip to the newsagents.

@suttonnick

Maria Popova

She’s a clever one is Maria. If you follow Stephen Fry, you’ll love this New York based writer and MIT fellow. Her 140 character thoughts on art, literature and science make us feel more intelligent every day.
