    Terrific Twitter Trio of the Week

    Lots of musicians tweet -- but all that Twitters is not gold. That's why you'll want to check out SPIN.com every Friday to see whose tweets we're reading this week -- then update your TweetDeck! (Obligatory Self-Promotion: ...while you're at it, be sure to follow @SPINmagazine!) This week's winners: Who: Tegan and Sara (@teganandsara) Why You Should Follow: When this indie-pop sister act released their latest album, Sainthood, on Tuesday, "#sainthood" became an instant Trending Topic -- much to surprise and delight of Tegan and Sara, who wrote "wtf. hilarious. #sainthood forever!" The pair had been on a bit of a Twitter hiatus since the end of the summer, posting less frequently than usual and mostly tweeting news updates and links to their Web site. But now that Sainthood is out, they've returned in full force.

This week's winners: Who: No Doubt (@nodoubt) Why You Should Follow: The band that tweets together, stays together. These ska-poppers began tweeting during their massive reunion tour this past summer -- and now they use Twitter as a means to keep in touch with each other while they're at home with their families. They've been tweeting from the studio, too, posting Twitpics of each other as they work on their long awaited follow-up to 2001's Rock Steady.

(Obligatory Self-Promotion: ...while you're at it, be sure to follow @SPINmagazine!) This week's winners: Who: Peter Bjorn and John (@peterbjornjohn) Why You Should Follow: This Swedish indie rock trio may seem distant and mysterious on stage, but on Twitter, they're more than happy to give followers a peek at their lives -- even revealing the secret behind their wallpaper photo, which shows the three of them holding a baby upside down by the foot ("Who's kid is the baby? A: We dont know but it's upside down"). They post Twitpics of sexy roadies and power naps in Holland, share stories about drinking too much wine and holding business meetings with MGMT, taunt @Schwarzenegger with Mr.

(Obligatory Self-Promotion: ...while you're at it, be sure to follow @SPINmagazine!) This week's winners: Who: St. Vincent(@st_vincent) Why You Should Follow: Until now, St. Vincent hasn't had much presence on the Internet. Her current tour with Andrew Bird seems to have ushered her into the digital age -- she just launched a new, beautifully filmed tour diary on her Web site and started tweeting almost twice as often as she did before. When she's not posting Twitpics of asses, Bruce Springsteen's or otherwise, she's expounding the joys of iced coffee, turning her nose up at melon ("Melon is an affront to the fruit community...

Frontman Fred Durst doesn't just tweet -- he answers questions, gives shout-outs to particularly dedicated followers, and invites anyone and everyone to add him on Skype (username: "mrfreddurst") and play Xbox Live with him. When he's not interacting with fans (and @peeweeherman, weirdly enough), Durst uses Twitter as his own personal video blog, posting Twitvids of failed cooking adventures and his son's adorable poolside antics.

(Obligatory Self-Promotion: ...while you're at it, be sure to follow @SPINmagazine!) This week's winners: Who: Mike Skinner (@skinnermike) Why You Should Follow: Mike Skinner -- better known as British rapper The Streets -- made waves in April for using Twitter to release three new songs from his upcoming (and final) album, Computers and Blues. Since then, he's released 10 more songs on the site and become one of Twitter's most interesting and candid contributors. He tweets about sex products, the pros and cons of drinking beer with breakfast, and U2 songs he hears on the radio.

(Obligatory Self-Promotion: ...while you're at it, be sure to follow @SPINmagazine!) This week's winners: Who: Weezer's Rivers Cuomo (@RiversCuomo) Why You Should Follow: Weezer's nerdy, bespectacled frontman is a man of mystery on Twitter. Rather than tweet about what he ate for lunch or what he thought of this week's Mad Men, Cuomo updates his page with stray thoughts ("I need some of that"), overheard conversations ("'Want some giraffe, Mommy?'"), and clever word play ("Male man," "Snark at the moon"). While it's sometimes difficult to make sense of what he's saying, his tweets are always intriguing -- and sometimes wise? ("There would be no rivers without the rain").
