This seems to have become an annual tradition and, like all these apparently fluffy listicle round-ups, does actually serve a purpose.First, it reminds us of things we enjoyed but had forgotten, giving us the pleasure of being tickled by them all over again.
And, secondly, we hope, it will help you find some people worth following who might not already be on your radar.
At any rate, if there’s anything below you particularly like, do give it a retweet. If these folk are anything like us, every RT is like a little pat on the back — the smallest unit of ‘thank you’ known to man.
