It’s been a long hard slog on this Twitter road we’re walking down. Promising Texas food Twitter accounts are hard to come by. Some that shone briefly descended into buffoonery while others that initially showed little promise have turned out to burn brightly. In part one we were like a pack of young beagles hot on the trail of a fat rabbit. Everything was shiny and new and we were blazing through the blackberry bushes of the internet and hoping to capture the prize and fry him up in a big cast iron pan.

Submitted for your approval we have part two of the leading lights of Texas food Twitter. These are the accounts in our feed that get us worked into a fine lather as they tweet. We look for high value, little noise, lots of signal. If you think this describes you put a hot link up in comments below and we’ll give you a gander.
