I follow Mark Hamill on Twitter because I find him entertaining. For example, this exchange:
The only reason I came back was to make Weird Al's lyrics come true.

On the other hand, I primarily follow Scott Hanselman because he drops interesting tech nuggets, such as when he retweeted this:
My roaming git config has been accumulating awesomeness for about a decade now. 🙂 https://t.co/D2vRNUdCoH

Don’t get me wrong, Scott can be entertaining too, but the git config linked from that tweet is full of things I didn’t even know you could configure! (Six months in, I’m still finding entirely new realms within git that I didn’t realize I didn’t know about!)
Seeing the config sections for the merge and diff tools, I also verified that yes, the bc merge/diff tool referenced in the git documentation really is (or at least, can be) Beyond Compare. I’ve been using TortiseGit for my Git GUI needs, but I also like Beyond Compare. (The default vi-based diff tool is just painful.)
And then I find an article about how to configure Beyond Compare to work with Git.
