Lots of musicians tweet -- but all that Twitters is not gold.
Why You Should Follow: Hip-hop artist B.o.B.—otherwise known as Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr.—makes music that's out of this world. Literally. His Ziggy Stardust-esque Twitter bio reads, "I am from a planet not too many light years from the planet called Earth currently residing in Atlanta making music for the masses." The masses do, in fact, love his music—his songs "Nothin' On You" and "Airplanes" (which featured vocals from Paramore's Hayley Williams) both peaked pretty high on the Billboard 200. Last week, it was announced that B.o.B. would be performing at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards and that he would provide the main support for Paramore during their November U.K. tour. Follow him as he travels the world, ponders life's great questions ("Does stewie griffin have a twitter?"), and hangs out with Rivers Cuomo and the cast of The Hard Times of R.J. Berger—at the same time. Bonus points: He often uses Twitter to communicate with fans—and the people who tweet-hate on him!
Best Tweet of the Week: "@yelyahwilliams I'm ready whenever you are!!!"—in reference to practicing "Airplanes" for their upcoming tour.
