One of the joys of the blue bird known as Twitter is that you can build up your own network based on the things you care about. And there are some truly brilliant people out there tapping away messages in 140 characters.
New York Magazine’s Kathryn Schulz perhaps but it best when she wrote: “Collectively, the people I follow on Twitter (…) come pretty close to my dream community.”
With that in mind, myself and the Wonder Women team (Emma Barnett, Louisa Peacock, Ian Douglas, Radhika Sanghani, Claire Cohen and Rhiannon Williams) have compiled a list of accounts we believe are worthy of a follow. This list is by no means exhaustive or even scientific; all those below were picked because they have provided some insight, valuable information or have made hilarious use of 140 characters along the way. (For those who want more suggestions, may I direct you to my colleague James Manning’s excellent compilation of 100 people to follow, featuring comedians, sports personalities, spoofs and… animals) . . .
