Justin Myers is a writer for British GQ and the author of three novels, most recently The Fake-Up. But he's probably best known for his blog The Guyliner, where since 2014 he has added his own commentary to a long-running dating column from the British newspaper The Guardian. Today on Follow Friday, Justin talks about four of his favorite people he follows online:

  • Someone who makes the internet a better place: Daytime Snaps, @daytimesnaps on Twitter
  • Someone who makes him think: Annie Lord, @annielord8 on Twitter and Instagram
  • Someone who makes him laugh: R Eric Thomas, @oureric on Twitter
  • Someone he doesn't know in real life, but wants to be friends with: Dame Joan Collins, @joancollinsDBE on Twitter and Instagram
