Twitter Tuesday: Helpful hints, drunken wisdom, pop culture gold

Back again with more great Twits to follow for your burgeoning Twitter feed. As always, follow us at @denverwestword, @cafewestword, @westword_music and @casciato.

@SocMediaRckStr: If you're just getting started with social media, it's nice to have some hints about what it can do, how to do it and where to go to get it done. Dawn A. Crawford's Social Media Rock Star feed is all about the who, what, where, when, how and whys of social media. I find interesting links there on a regular basis, and you can, too. Plus it has a pretty, sparkly pink star as its avatar and a pink/black star background.

@Modern_Drunkard: It's no secret that Twitter is one of the best technologies available for leaving an indelible trail of embarrassment when used drunk. So is it any surprise that the editor of Modern Drunkard is a Twitter user? Actually, his feed is quite funny, albeit disappointingly free of embarrassing stupidity. Instead, you get the penetrating philosophical insights of a lifelong lush, such as "I don't get groups of sober people. Especially after 5pm. I mean -- just what the fuck are they trying to do?" What the fuck, indeed.

@Trashwire: The Twitter feed of Trashwire.com, a cool pop-culture blog based here in Denver. The Twitter feed is full of links to the blog, which is worth following if only for reminders that new material has appeared, as well as commentary on pop-culture happenings and news from around the intarwebs.
