Top Five OC Artists to Follow on Twitter
What you'll find Cam pics from Gwen Stefani, random news from the band (Adrian ran the NYC marathon), Tom's new baby (due early 2011), updates on how the album is doing (they have eight songs done!).
Why you shoud follow them It's the best kind of shared, official Twitter account--full of juicy tidbits and personable.
Our only complaint Update more frequently, please!
Jeffree Star @JeffreeStar
Why you should follow him There's a lot of gratitude and familiarity in Jeffree Star's Twitter, which makes you think that deep inside, he's a sensitive soul.
Our only complaint? Too many replies to people tweeting about him makes it hard to find the real content, but then that is how you build your fanbase--and the whole point of social networking.
What you'll find Maybe we're biased since drummer Riley Breckenridge blogs for us, but this is another shared band account that's really active, personable and interesting. If you're a fan, you'll love that they post remixes, birthday greetings and random brainfarts--plus, photos of the band in their downtime and otherwise.
Why you should follow them To find out how real bands of Orange County live.
Our only complaint It would be interesting to read this Twitter account if it were a little more Kanyefied. Contrary to popular belief, we do want to know what kind of bedsheets you sleep on, famous rock stars!
What you'll find Links to updates from his podcast, The Watt From Pedro Show, birthday greetings to friends, recording updates.
Why you should follow him Sure he lives in San Pedro (hence the Twitter name), but when he's in the country, he gigs in tiny venues in Long Beach a lot, and works with various OC musicians.
Our only complaint Twitter wasn't made for pimpin' other links. Well, OK, it was, but would it hurt to post more Twitpics? Aaand--a six month break from Twitter is unacceptable.
What you'll find This Long Beach resident, AKA the busiest drummer in the world (he drums for Weezer, the Vandals, A Perfect Circle, Devo and Nine Inch Nails--among other bands), tweets about his high profile gigs with Yo Gabba Gabba, Weezer and APC, and jokes about the Beatles on iTunes--and then there are really personal tweets (like, his Volvo on sale or the Twitpic of his wife giving birth in the delivery room). Best of all, he updates FREQUENTLY.
Why you should follow him Freese's Twitter account is the 140-character, virtual equivalent of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. It's the best place for insider music news.
Our only complaint None. I wish all Twitter accounts were like this.
