How do I get into Twitter?

Are you into twitter? If so, how did you get into it and who did you follow? Do you use it more with friends or celebrities? I hear a lot of people say they like twitter, but I never seem to have quite gotten it.

I'm curious about both who to follow, what software to use (I am currently using the browser version on both my phone and computer), etc.
Interests (off the top of my head) include:
- Politics (I'm a liberal and I tend to prefer nuance to pithy one-liners about how the other party is wrong)
- Programming (I really like python, but I'm familiar with a few more languages)
- Motivational advice (mainly, just stuff to get me to get up from the computer and do something).
- Electronics (as in DIY soldering, not shiny gadgets)
- Some science (Preferably not the sensationalist type that claims AIDS cures are almost ready every single week).
If it helps, I also really like Google Plus and niche social networks like Ravelry and Good Reads. I use facebook to keep in touch with most friends, and only know a handful of people from real life on Twitter, and they're not very active.
