I posted (on Twitter) a few weeks ago that I was going to write a blog about all the notable BMXers who use Twitter. I took my sweet ass time writing it and a lot of people wrote to me (on Twitter) telling me they were looking forward to it. The thing about Twitter is that it’s a slow growing phenomenon. I first heard about it 6 months ago and thought it sounded stupid (most people think this when they hear the concept of Twitter described, until they actually use it) but then I finally signed up and slowly got more and more into it. This is neither the time nor the place to discuss exactly why Twitter is so addictive. I just wanted to compile a list of important BMX related Twitter users so that any new Twitter users won’t have a hard time populating the list of people to follow. I’m going to periodically update this list (I’ll make a post on the main page whenever I do) once I have a bunch of worthy new users, so if you think you belong on the list or know of someone who does, feel free to leave your links and reasons why in the comments.
@Thecomeup I made the list so I get to put myself first on it!

@Adambanton : Used to have braces.
@Deluxebmx : Former Ride UK owner and current Deluxe owner, Mark Noble.
@Ryanmagin : I’ve never actually heard of this guy but he says he’s a pro racer, so that’s good enough for me.
