When you follow over a thousand people, it can be quite hard to pick some that really stand out. However there's definitely been a few that are on my essential to follow list.
So, in no particular order, here are my top tweeters of 2014:
The ever controversial Charles. I don't always agree with everything he says or posts, but it gives me heart that there are people like him around that never accept what we are told on face value, and are constantly looking for the truth. There are several big national/global scandals coming that most people will have heard about first from him.
Just an awesome human being. She writes about difficulty and struggle, but in a way that shows true strength.Also incredibly dirty. Incredibly so...
Following yet more unnecessary deaths of black american males, this has become one of the most important twitter accounts there are. A great person to follow to stay informed of what's being said in America on this major issue.
Arriving as a pom to Australia, it's very difficult to get a true understanding of aboriginal or indigenous culture. This is a great account to really understand the history and realities of the first people in Australia, in a society where too many are left with the scars of past generations. When I first arrived, I was shocked that probably 80% of indigenous people I came into contact with were on the streets begging, and it's only by understanding decades of inferior treatment that you can appreciate how this has sadly come to be in some parts - and also understand the (usually unseen) great things others are doing.
A wonderfully funny and slightly dirty person. Not as bad as Marlespo... but close. Also great at retweeting crazy posts from others.
A late edition. Writer of an excellent blog on dating and single life. Although with her recent change to looking like a superhero comic book librarian, she may need to find another subject to write about before long!
