With millions of Twitter users out there – it can at times be challenging to find those in your niche and with shared interests. So last weekend I challenged readers of TwiTip to come up with their own ‘Top 10 Twitter Users’ in different topics.
What followed was quite extraordinary with 147 people submitting their own lists – each on different topics. I actually was quite inspired by the variety of topics mentioned as I watched the lists come in over the last week.
There are topics being written about that I didn’t even imagine that there would be present on Twitter (although I should have).
Over the coming weeks I’m going to feature some of these ‘Top 10 Lists’. I’m doing it in the hope that it’ll highlight the variety of what Twitter is being used for, in the hope that it’ll help people to find others with common interests and to hopefully give you all a little inspiration to come up with your own Top 10 list for a topic that you are passionate about (submit it in the comments on this post).
Here are just 3 of the lists submitted so far.
