3 reasons to follow @alyankovic on Twitter printed its list of 100 Geeks You Should Be Following On Twitter, and at least one worthy '80s icon made the list: Weird Al Yankovic. (And least one worthy '80s blogger did not make the list.)

I already follow Weird Al on Twitter, but in case you're still wavering...


3. COOL PHOTOS: As a touring musician, Al has time on his hands. And he spends them posting great pics to Twitter. Like him with a wookiee. Or this gem.

2. HE'S COOLER THAN YOU: A great tweet: "Here's how to distinguish between them: A STALACTITE hangs down from the TOP of a cave. BON IVER is the 2012 Best New Artist GRAMMY winner."

1. YOU CAN CALL HIM: Just today, Weird Al was sitting in a JFK airport lobby and was obviously looking for anyone to chat. His tweet: "Got some time to kill at JFK - if you want to chat, for the next 30 minutes I'll be at this pay phone: (718)374-9119"
