10=. Stephen Fry, Actor, Comedian
Twitter without Stephen Fry would be unthinkable. For many, he is synonymous with the medium. A notable early adopter in 2008, he was a central figure in the medium's boom in popularity in the UK. An incident where he live-tweeted being stuck in a lift resonated far beyond the Twittersphere. Since then we've seen an online phenomenon christened the "Fry effect", where curiosities he unearths from the web and shares on Twitter cause servers to crash under weight of demand. Many authors and musicians are deeply grateful for his Twitter patronage; others, such as Daily Mail journalist Jan Moir, know the perils of provoking his ire. Fry himself is a sensitive soul, and not averse to a flounce when people get nasty, but he always comes back.
