When a friend of mine volunteered to manage the Twitter account for his local community library I asked my Twitter followers who were the best library, book and publishing Twitter accounts to follow. Here are their recommendations.

This list is in no way comprehensive nor is it sorted in any order. If you want an even bigger list, Matt Anderson recommends 200 librarians to follow over on his blog.
