Twitter: Foodies, Chefs. Counting Characters...

It's the latest foodie 'diet' trend: counting characters, not calories. 140 characters or less..

Are you trying to break into the online foodie scene, but don't know where to start? Check out Twitter, where the foodie community is alive and delicious.

Everyone from Bobby Flay and Giada to Jean Georges and Gael Greene are joining in the mouth-watering fun. Whole Foods, Jamba Juice and restaurants like Candle 79 are also on the Twitter scene. Sights (twitpics), sounds, smells, recipes (or twecipes), menus and tips are tweeted. Here is a nice list of my fave foodies, brands, hosts and chefs on Twitter. I've even *starred* my favorite vegan tweeters. Tweet, Tweet, Chomp, Chomp...
