Inside Flipboard / July 20, 2012
We’re rounding up â€œTwitter Weekâ€ here at Inside Flipboard by featuring some of our favorite Twitter lists, which you can see in the U.S. Content Guide (tap on the red ribbon). We hope they inspire you to create your own lists (here’s how) and that you share them with us by tweeting to @flipboard.
Funniest People on Twitter: This list is a mishmash of folks who’ve mastered creating maximum laughs out of minimum characters. Check out the latest madcap jokes from late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien and comedian Louis C.K. and see funny quotes from fictional accounts, like The Dark Lord of @Lord_Voldemort7 (for all the Harry Potter fans out there) and @DarthVader.
Scoble’s Tech Influencers: In Robert Scoble’s hugely popular “Most Influential in Tech” list, he compiles the Twitter accounts of CEOs, thought leaders and famous tech innovators to deliver the latest and greatest in tech news and opinion.

Grant, General Stonewall Jackson, President Abraham Lincoln, and more as the turning-point events unfold.
