Before you start digging through the following, you should probably follow Paste Movies on Twitter. We like to think we’ve got a pretty sterling reputation for .gif curation.
Even the best Twitter feeds can be ephemeral manifestations. Actors get busy (or accidentally incite a Twitter-storm), studio promotion machines let faux-character accounts fade away, and it’s easy for even the most diehard Tweet machine to just get sick of dealing with the trolls. For those of us who enjoy the medium, though, it’s worth refreshing the ol’ follow list from time to time. To that end, we’ve gathered 100 movie-related feeds that will provide a film-lover several morning papers worth of film chatter, insight and news.
Enjoy these feeds today—they could be gone tomorrow.
