Everybody's doing it.

It's become so mainstream that when somebody hacks the Associated Press Twitter feed, it moves the Dow more than 100 points. If you've resisted the Twitter experience so far, give it a try.

The secret to using Twitter is to be choosy. Don't follow just anybody. Constrain your list to the feeds that will provide you with the most important (and reliable) information.

Whether you're new to Twitter or somebody that has thousands of followers, the key to getting the most out of it is to follow the right people and organizations. We put together a list to get you started.
