I recently started to use twitter as a source for "Tip of the Day" style hints to new and old scientific developments, useful tips in statistics or mathematics, and programming tricks.

While I stumbled upon many useful things by following e.g.

I have the feeling that there must be thousands of this type of tweets on twitter. Unfortunately, I find it hard to filter out good ones.


What is your recommendation for good tweets to keep up in computer science, math, statistics, or science in general?

Are you married to Twitter? If not, Google Alerts might do nicely. It's fairly low-noise.

The following style works for me . . . . I never randomly search Twitter looking for tweets in a particular topic . . . . Rather, I follow a particular twitter account only if I'm totally convinced with the corresponding tweeter's website by following their newsletters, blogs, posts etc . . .By this way, my twitter feed has only tweets from persons I absolutely trust . . . .

LONG STORY SHORT : Follow a twitter account through a reliable website you are following and enjoying thoroughly ....
