Musicians who Twitter

(*Updated November 3, 2009.)

I made Twitter list here.

As everyone knows, Twitter’s people search was non-existent until just recently, and is mediocre even now. Given that, I compiled a VERY SHORT LIST (NOT THE TRADEMARKED KIND) of musicians who Twitter.

I have tried following most of them, and I’ll be honest with you: the majority of them are very, very, very bad at Twittering. I had to quit them. I’m sorry. Shaq is the least musician among them, but perhaps the second-best Twitterer (Jonathan Coulton is easily the best), in a fucked-up zen sort of way.

(If you would rather just follow people who are smart and/or hilarious, go here and scroll to the bottom.) Lil Wayne and Chris Brown and some others did some Twittering for the VMAs a couple years ago and were awful, then quit, so I didn’t include them. Also, I cannot guarantee the authenticity of all of these accounts. There are a lot of fakesters out there, and it’s not difficult to impersonate inanity.

(Also, of course, you can always follow a REAL HUMAN BEING. Just saying.)

Links for 7.7.08: Block Party, Fleet Foxes videos, Jay-Z ringtones, Kanye’s rage…

*Currently tops on my list of “Lists Whose Purpose I Must Not Fully Understand” is this Listening Post list of the Top 10 Hottest Music Sites. MOG? But not Hype Machine. I may not have mentioned this previously, but I am retarded.

*Nice list: Songs with lyrics with 35 words or fewer. Includes “You Are So Beautiful.” I may not have mentioned this previously, but I am a strict adherent to the tenet: Clarity. Levity. Brevity.

*If I were just sitting around blogging all day, I would have passed these on earlier. Like, hours ago.

Video: Bloc Party’s “Mercury.” There are monkey things. [everywhere]

*And also: Fleet Foxes’ “White Winter Hymnal.”

*And also: Santogold’s “Creator.” [getty images]

*Thumbplay is releasing 10 exclusive ringtones from Jay-Z. Personally, I have a Biggie Smalls ringtone. It is very embarrassing, and part of a complicated ritual of self-mortification I have for some reason undertaken.

*Are Kanye’s people trying to send him to anger management classes? I, for one, would be pissed. [rock daily] Mr. West’s response? “I NEED ANGER ENHANCEMENT! LOL!

*The Family Osbourne has a variety show coming out on Fox. OK, now I’m irate.

*Read: An L.A. Times article on Girl Talk’s Feed the Animals and pay-what-you-want Topspin Media. [coolfer]

*Off topic: Is Twitter buying Summize?

American wrestling + Japanese monster movies = Kaiju Big Battel.
