I really hate doing Follow Fridays on Twitter. Not because I hate people, by any means (that’s a different issue altogether), but because I always feel like I leave someone out or something and then I feel bad. There are so many awesome people on Twitter whom I admire and respect. Also, it’s a freaking chore to do every week. So, instead, I have compiled a list of people I shall, as the post suggests, Follow vForever. You people have taught me so much about film, writing, and also life. About halfway through, I got really lazy, because the list got very long and I am, at heart, a lazy bum. Anyways, have a very Happy New Year. I shall be updating this list every so often and linking to it and such.
