I first signed up to Twitter at the start of this year (you can follow me at @carawaters). I am not what you would call an earlier adapter to this sort of technology so I was a little behind the rest of the UK where it seems that we are all mad for Twitter. Lily Allen twitters, Sarah Brown twitters and half of Britain’s foodie population seem to be firmly glued to Twitter. Besides occasional concerns that “just checking” Twitter takes up a lot more of my time than it really should, I have really enjoyed being a part of Twitter. It is a great way about finding out about things like interesting articles, events and also for getting last minute tips on places to go. So when I saw (via Twitter of course) Mashable’s list of 55+ foodies to follow on Twitter I was immediately intrigued. Unfortunately the list is fairly US centric (although it appears to have global aspirations) and Britain’s representation was pretty much limited to Jamie Oliver. Following a few tweets with World Foodie Guide and Tasty Treats about this, I decided to try and compile a similar list, however focused on British Foodies.
