(Newser) – With all the normal people suddenly overrunning Twitter, “we have to stick together, and keep the geek community thriving,” writes GeekDad Ken Denmead for Wired. He’s compiled a list of 100 geeks worth following. Here are a few:

  • Wil Wheaton (wilw): Blogger, writer, and, oh yeah, Wesley Crusher.
  • Al Yankovic (alyankovic): The king of geek music.
  • Adam Savage (dontrythis): Co-host of Mythbusters.

  • John Hodgman (hodgman): It’s PC himself!
  • Neil Gaiman (neilhimself): Maybe geekdom’s favorite author.
  • Harry Knowles (headgeek666): The AintItCoolNews founder.
  • Jonathan Coulton (jonathancoulton): You’ll know him as the guy who wrote the end music for Portal.
  • Felicia Day (feliciaday): She’s a geek in real life, too.
  • Kevin Smith (thatkevinsmith): The writer/director owns a comic book shop.
  • John Cleese (johncleese): Because who doesn’t love Monty Python?
