In the light of recent events, I thought it might be fun to have a look at a short list of public figures, plus myself, and see which was the very first account we all followed on Twitter. In most cases, it tells you quite a bit about the person - where they work, which celebrity they most admire, who they share political and/or moral convictions with...or in Jeremy Corbyn's case it doesn't tell you anything at all.
Me : Subrosa (pro-independence blogger)
Ruth Davidson : Heather Peace (actress, musician and gay rights activist)
Jeremy Corbyn : Syam Ahmedarino (seemingly random bloke from Malaysia)
Leanne Wood : Colin Nosworthy (Welsh language campaigner)
Stephen Daisley : Matt Roper (STV Digital Editor)
George Osborne : David Cameron (Prime Minister)
Willie Rennie : Caron Lindsay (Scottish Liberal Democrat activist and blogger)
Alex Salmond : Kirk J. Torrance (SNP new media strategist)
Brian Spanner : Euan McColm (popular journalist)
Patrick Harvie : Adam Ramsay (Green writer/blogger)
Gerry Adams : Shaun Tracey (Sinn Féin press officer)
Incidentally, I noticed as I was scrolling through various accounts that David Cameron still follows Douglas Carswell, which is rather sweet.
