Whom to Follow on Twitter

There are lots of options when it comes to whom to follow on Twitter. Some people mostly follow their friends. Others like to follow Hollywood celebrities. Still others go for following politicians. But here's who I follow: Voyager 2.

Voyager is the most distant Tweeter you can follow. And that's cool. Here is a recent Tweet from Voyager 2:

I am currently 13 hrs 08 mins 46 secs of light-travel time from Earth (2011:162:2L). 

That's it. Nothing really major, except that light and radio waves take over 13 hours to reach Earth, so ever time you hear from Voyager 2, the message took over a half day to arrive at the speed of light. It's a blast to get Voyager 2's tweets.
