      Hi Ruth – if it wasn’t clear, this was a repost of a piece from MediaUK.com – I’m sure they’d be happy to add you to the list if you ask them!

      • I wonder what the point of reposting something from @mediauk was, when a link would have given you an up-to-date list… ?!

        Anyway… mine not to reason why…

        The link to the update is at http://www.mediauk.com/newspapers/people/twitter if you wanted it.

          James – thanks for the comment – I’ve recently started using Posterous – which auto posts items to my blog. Given comments on another recent post, I think I may have to rethink the whole Posterous repost routine. Appreciate the link to the updated list – I’ll edit this post to redirect people to the original list.
