10 twitter users worth following in 2010


A few days ago, I published a short list of 10 blogs you should bookmark this year. But what about Twitter users?

I consulted several helpful sites, including TweetStats and Twitter Analyzer, for the answer. Here are the results:

1. @MSNBC_travel

No surprise that I retweet a lot of MSNBC’s posts. I’m a columnist for the site.

2. @Gadling

Gadling’s content is interesting and the folks running its Twitter account really “get” social media.

3. @Marilyn_Res

Marilyn Terrell, who is a colleague at National Geographic Traveler, is a Twitter goddess.


4. @Flyingwithfish

Steve Frischling is the other blogger who was subpoenaed by the feds last week. He never stops working. Or twittering.

5. @Wendyperrin

She’s Conde Nast Traveler’s advice columnist, but she’s so much more than that.

6. @WeJustGotBack

Family travel expert Suzanne Kelleher has an engaging Twitter presence.

7. @Leocha

Hey, I know why I retweet all of Charlie Leocha’s posts: I work with this guy!

8. @Rickseaney

He was also on my list of blogs to follow. Same reasons.

9. @ExpertCruiser

Anita Potter knows cruises and social media.

10. @Wanderlust13

Ronnie Stoddart is the deputy managing editor for travel at USA Today. Enough said.
