Baratunde Thurston, Jay Rosen, Fake AP Stylebook among Time’s picks for best Twitter feeds

Time social media editor Allie Townsend and social media associate Amy Lombard have made their picks for “the 140 Twitter feeds that are shaping the online conversation in 2012.” Making their list are quite a few journalists — many in the news and information category, but some in culture, technology and elsewhere. You can follow discussion about the picks at #Twitter140.

Baratunde Thurston, digital director for The Onion, made the list for culture, as did @TheOnion for humor. @FakeAPStylebook also made the list for humor. The Atlantic’s Alexis Madrigal was among the choices for “Tech & Geek,” along with NYU professor Jay Rosen.
