How to get started on Twitter

You can get your free Twitter account at www.twitter.com. You can then follow the growing number of F1 drivers, teams and other personalities on Twitter.

If you’ve found a real F1 or other motor racing person or team on Twitter, please post details in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

Are they real?

There are many fake F1 Twitter accounts. The ones that admit they are fakers are easy to spot and often very entertaining (like fakemarkwebber and fakemaxmosley).

But there are also some people pretending to run official accounts for drivers or teams. Here is a list of several prominent false accounts identified in early 2012.

If you’ve found a real F1 or other motor racing person or team on Twitter, please post details in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

    Result of a few minutes of persuasion work by Anthony Davidson before today’s Peugeot LMP1 car launch, confirmed by Ant.

    autosportlive would be a great account to add (or perhaps I missed iton the list!)

    PDLR is now on Twitter.

    @PedrodelaRosa1

    Confirmed by Alex Wurz’s feed… and yeah, Alex is on his way to turning into a Twitter maniac. :)) Maybe we’ll see Alex tweeting from his Peugeot at Le Mans during practice.

    think i had suggested that too earlier

    Does sniffpetrol count? :)

  8. Hi I’m Mike Sheppard and I am a member of the media working in F1 (clients include BBC). I also do the communications role for 20-time British Touring Car Champions Triple Eight Race Engineering. Many F1 fans will know of our Chairman Ian Harrison and Sporting director Les Jones (both ex-Williams). For anybody interested in following us we have recently set up a twitter account. It is @official888race

    Everybody is welcome to follow us – the more, the merrier!

    Hi Keith,

    PR director at HRT is @AlbaSaiz

  11. Ronald said on 23rd April 2011, 10:58

    Sorry, messed up my message;

    (Dutch TV) = Olav Mol

    (Dutch TV) = Allard Kalff

    (Dutch TV) = Rick Winckelman

    (FIA WTCC) = Tom Coronel

  12. Rach said on 5th May 2011, 20:20

    Mclaren/Jenson’s physio is @mikeycollier . I only know this because Jenson referred to him today in a tweet!

  13. ed24f1 (@ed24f1) said on 15th May 2011, 17:46

    Alguersuari seems to have changed his account to @AlguersuariJA

  14. Stretch (@stretch) said on 9th June 2011, 12:57

    Dunno who would see this but is there a directory for facebook? Just that I never use twitter…

    • Keith Collantine (@keithcollantine) said on 9th June 2011, 13:26

      Not at present, could potentially do one in the future.

      But to be honest most teams and drivers just seem to use Facebook as an extension of the websites and post pretty much the same content on there. In my experience, you get far more immediate and original material from them on Twitter.

      • Stretch (@stretch) said on 9th June 2011, 14:35

        On race weekends and when I’m near a computer I check out the live blog for twitter updates. Just be nice to have a bit more team based stuff in the one place. But yeah I see what you mean about the content.
