Behind-the-Scenes TweetsAs I mentioned before, I like getting on-the-set updates from Marc Webb, director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Webb Tweets at least a couple of times a day, usually with a photo, and it's cool to get access to that back stage stuff. After thinking about other directors I keep tabs on, I put this post together to give you a quick way to follow them.
Of course, the reason I'm following these particular directors is because they're all helming superhero movies. By the way, I couldn't find Twitter accounts for Shane Black (Iron Man 3) and Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World).

Twitter TipsIf you're new to Twitter, here's how to set up a list.
- On your Twitter homepage, click "Lists" on the left sidebar.
- Click "Create List".
- Make a list just for the directors you want to follow.
- Once you've assigned all the directors to your new list, click on the drop down box next to their name. (See red arrow in image below.)
- Optional - Click "Turn on mobile notifications." Now every time one of the directors Tweets something from the set you'll get a text message. (Note - You must be following someone to get notifications.)
Here's the latest Tweet from each director (as of Feb. 17, 2013).
James Mangold is wrapping up production on The Wolverine.
