@macworld -- Macworld

This would be a cop-out entry if Macworld were not such an informative and useful feed for Mac users to subscribe to. But it would be a shame not to mention one of the best Mac tweeters on the grounds of its obviousness. (Macworld is a sister publication of Computerworld.)

Macworld's Twitter feed is a great starting point for folks who wish to maximize their education-to-noise ratio. The tweets are mostly Apple product-based, but there are occasional tweets about interesting news in the PC sector. To keep up with everything that's going on in the world of Apple, Macworld is a sure bet.

@feedmyapple -- apple correspondent -- and @awtisa -- awtisa

Making up for the obvious Macworld selection, here are a couple of lesser-known Twitter accounts for those who want to know every scrap of information that leaks out of Apple's Cupertino, Calif., headquarters. I've found that by following these two in concert, I rarely miss a Mac story worth reading.

While Apple-focused, these feeds occasionally dip into other news as well, from music to Google's Nexus One smartphone to the Fox TV show Glee. However, if you absolutely want to make sure every bit of Apple news gets to you via Twitter, add these two to your follow list.

@robpickering -- Rob Pickering

Rob's bio tells us he's a "Technology geek and IT VP with interests from SCUBA to Macintosh and iPhone to UNIX and World of Warcraft." In other words, he fits right in on this list. His tweets are mostly about technology, with many focusing on his Mac and software for the Mac.
