#followfriday Suggestions

#followfriday (or #ff) is a tradition started by Micah Baldwin (according to Mashable), whereby you name Twitter user your followers should know about. It is important to provide information about the name user, to help others decide whether to follow them. Hence, in addition to naming interesting users on Twitter, I provide a bit of background information on them in here. Enjoy!

Last week I mentioned a well known Twitter user. This week, I am choosing a ‘newcomer’, @inesvarelasilva.

Ines is an academic, with a particular interest on the relationship between nutrition and health. Hence, her tweets include lots of interesting facts and links to studies about these two topics. For instance, the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, or the link between fried food and coronary disease. Let’s face it, these topics are relevant for all of us.

But that’s not all.

Ines is, also, an avid supporter of theatre and (probably) Kevin Spacey’s biggest fan. Her tweets will keep you updated on the latest productions at The Old Vic, fundraising events, etc.

Ah… and she is a Zumba fanatic. Her enthusiasm is so contagious that, maybe, one day I will give Zumba another try – I’ll just have to choose an occasion when the class is nearly empty… or I risk seriously injuring someone when they all go right and I am the only one rushing left.

In addition to following @inesvarelasilva, you may wish to subscribe to her blog to learn more about her research activities.
