Behind-the-Scenes Tweets

As 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 Tips

If you're new to Twitter, here's how to set up a list.

  1. On your Twitter homepage, click "Lists" on the left sidebar. 
  2. Click "Create List".
  3. Make a list just for the directors you want to follow.
  4. 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.)
  5. 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.)
