twitter.pngPaste magazine needs assurances that Twitter is more than just a waste of time, so its set about compiling top 10 lists of the best microbloggers out there. Yesterday, the magazine released its list of the top 10 magazines to follow on Twitter.

Topping the list are Wired (@Wired) and Good magazine (@GOODfeed), with favorite Tweets such as “Q: How many helium balloons would it take to lift a house? A: http://is.gd/Jht5″ (from Wired) and “You Stay Classy, G. Gordon Liddy http://ow.ly/aqiw” (that’s a recent Good Tweet).

Smaller pubs like beer magazine Draft (@draftmag) — home to FishbowlNY contributor Noah Davis — indie music magazine Under The Radar (@Under_Radar_Mag), and hip hop/electronica publication Urb (@Urb@URBMAG) also got a shout outs from Paste.
