Twitter for infographics journalists

Twitter is the new fashion in online communication. The microblogging service allows a maximum of 140 characters for each message (as the SMS). Here you are a list of accounts owned by infographics journalists or people related with the infographics sphere. I just publish open profiles (not protected), because I think that they won't have a problem with it (Anyway, if someone doen't want his twitter account to appear here, just tell me and I'll erase it). You can also say yours on comments. Some of them are in spanish, and others not very active, but I'll put them here just in case... I begin with my own account...
