    It'd be good to get a list of as many major members of the community and community websites as possible who use twitter, then you guys can keep up with what these guys are up to.

    I know of:

    @uberchargednet - ubercharged.net
    @mangy - MangyCarface, maker of CP_Yukon and PL_frontier
    @marmalade_tim - YM, maker of pl_hoodoo and cp_manor
    @TeamFortress - Valve's account, usually just tf2.com's updates
    @GamingHeads - Guys making the limited edition class statuettes
    @KritzKast - KritzKast TF2 podcast
    @CommunityFT - Community fortress account
    @3Dnj - 3Dnj, maker of cp_mountainlab and koth_lakeside
    @aarongarcha - Psy, maker of plr_nightfall

    List - http://twitter.com/marmalade_tim/tf2

    Who else do you guys know on twitter, share and I'll add them to the list.

    Post your own twitter accounts and I'll start a TF2M list too.

    It would be interesting if TF2M.net had a twitter account, don't know what we could tweet, but it might be a cool way to promote featured maps, or upcoming maps...

    (I don't use twitter, FB is enough for meh)

    We do have a twitter account, the only drawback is none of the staff are real big tweeters.

    I have twitter, but I rarely post TF2 stuff, as I rarely do TF2 stuff anymore :/
    Anywho, I haz twitter, if anyone is interested at all. Things are picking up TF2-wise with me, so you never know, I might make the odd relevant tweet every now and then.

    I almost never say anything to do with TF2, so it's not really worth me offering my name to the mappers list.

    Good lists though, I forgot lists were even possible, that's why I rarely follow a lot of people - don't want them clogging up my feed

    I'm considering making one, it would be good to follow the contest progress. I have to admit i have almost no idea what's going on there in terms of active maps; mostly because the map mode focus is so obscure it's hard to follow what are entries and what are not.

    @Randdalf, but I don't use it much. In fact I've used it mainly for getting Radiohead updates and cryptic messages... maybe it'd be interesting to do.

    I can't seem to load the list when logged in to follow it, though :(

    So that's exist and TMP added.

    This isn't some dedicated to TF2 tweets thing, it's just a list of anyone who tweets at TF2M, whatever they happen to be tweeting about.
