Best foodies to follow on Twitter

Twitter, with its 140 character limit, has created a universe of its own. The instant gratification of a tweet is something not even Facebook can beat. The thrill of your favorite celebrity chef following you and the culinary community that it has created are just a few of Twitter’s perks.

Meet today’s tastemakers in the culinary world: food bloggers, celebrity chefs, food writers and others who are letting the world take a peek into their lives, one tweet at a time.

Bio: Boston-based photographer and food blogger, @myfoodthoughts tweets insider peeks into his photo shoots at some of the most prominent Boston restaurants, photos of his adorable dog and, to make it even better, his husband @EricFrishman tweets #marriedtoafoodphotographer, a sweet parody as he has to wait for Brian to snap a photo before he can eat!

Why we love him: If you need anything Boston-related, Brian is your go-to guy. He blogs over at A Thought For Food.

Sample tweet: Oct. 23, 2013: “Not sure if it’s the onions I’m cooking or the wine I’m drinking, but I’m starting to feel pretty cozy.”
