If you want to be a social success it pays to know what everyone is up to – but you can’t spend your life watching your Twitter stream in case you miss anything important. Probably one of Twitter’s best kept secrets is @MagicRecs, an experimental account that you can follow to help you stay on top of your social graph. It will send you a direct messages if anything is happening that you should be aware of. This could be if three or more of the people you follow all retweet the same tweet, or start following the same person. Think of it as a Twitter activity alert – or the online equivalent of a really nosy neighbour who can’t help gossiping with you over the garden fence.
