@danieleran -- Daniel Eran Dilger

Daniel Eran Dilger is a San Francisco-based consultant who runs RoughlyDrafted, a Web site dedicated to analyzing technology, specifically as it relates to Apple. He's well known for calling out the tech pundits he disagrees with, and for his often lengthy and detailed analyses regarding anything that stems from the halls of Apple headquarters. From a dissection of Apple's server strategy to Ten Myths of Apple's iPad, RoughlyDrafted is a treasure trove of Apple information.

Dilger doesn't tweet as often as the others on this list, but when he does, it's usually a link to breaking Apple news or interesting commentary.

@cberkeley -- Carl Berkeley

Straight from his Twitter bio: "Carl Berkeley writes a Mac Users Guide which offers the latest news, reviews, how-tos and expert opinions on everything Mac users need to know." That aptly sums up his tweets, which generally feature reviews, news, rumors, and useful hints and tips for Macs and other Apple products.

Remember to clean your iPhone, unplug all cables and turn it off. Use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Don't use household cleaners.

@9to5mac -- 9to5Mac

Run by "a loosely assorted group of Mac managers and Macintosh business enthusiasts," 9to5Mac is a site dedicated to Apple rumors and tidbits. (Although 9to5Mac co-founder Seth Weintraub blogs for Computerworld.com, the site has no affiliation with Computerworld or its parent company, IDG.)

As the 9to5mac Twitter bio states, "We break Apple News," and that rather succinctly sums up most of the tweets. Other tweets cover deals on technology, Apple tech tips and tricks, and general technology news. If you're looking to be as up-to-date as possible -- and get juicy Apple rumors -- this is one account to follow.
