My feed is literary agents, authors, scientists, tech gurus, local and national news stations and personalities, a few Seahawks players, news sources, and fans, and a couple of comedy accounts for the occasional break in monotony. This means most of it is filled with the latest about books, the publishing industry, advice from industry experts, opinions on such, authors, sci-fi/fantasy/horror, science and technology, with a spattering of breaking current events, local news/traffic/weather, Seahawks/sports info, and a few friends. That's my tailored feed, because that's my biz. That's also what I tweet about, which means that's what the folks who follow me are looking for, 'cause that's why they follow, I'd assume.
Twitter is essentially a customized version of the bottom line on news/sports/whatever channels, except you can tailor your feed to exactly and only what you want to see. If you want nothing but tweets from actors, athletes, and performers, you can follow only those type of accounts. If you want straight news, sports, politics, technology, gossip, fashion, promos, general asshattery, whatever, you can do that too. The nice thing about it is that it allows a far wider and more varied array of information than any news channel or other Internet source.
