Best Tweeps for Writers to Follow 2015

I used to make a Best Tweeps for Writers to Follow list on my Not Bob blog. Assuming we eventually get into Twitter for this month-long platform challenge, I thought I should bring it back. The list is fast, loose and fun.

If you think you deserve to be on this list and you’re not, let me know below. If you think someone else should be on this list and they’re not, let me know below (or on Twitter @RobertLeeBrewer). Beyond that, make sure you follow some new tweeps.

Best Tweeps for Writers to Follow 2015

briantwitterimageThis list is not really in any order, and I’ll let you know now that it is subjective and includes people I know in real life (including co-workers) and people I don’t know in real life (but wish I did).

Anyway, here it goes:

  47. @TheBookMaven
  48. @JeffGoins
  49. @ThisIsSethsBlog
  50. @OrnaRoss

And we’ll stop there. Not because this is a comprehensive list, but because 50 is nice a round number, and I love debate. So let me (and everyone else in the blogosphere) know the obvious omissions I was too blind to see in the comments below.

Maybe they’ll make the list next year!

    I have a twitter @marlacarlton

    Followed everyone on the list above. Thank you.

    I like Jon Winokur @AdviceToWriters great quotes to inspire writing.

  2. kdexter

    I’d suggest adding Marla Beck. She’s a coach for writers. Her tweets are by turns funny, inspirational, challenging. A bit like Rachelle Gardner on your list in tone but with different background/focus. @marlabeck

    1. Janusjoys

      Thanks for the tip I’m now following Marla Beck as well . And for those of you who would like to diversify @jevonbolden she is an incredible copy write editor with inspirational insights!

    Already on Twitter, @lmastand. I looked into using my name and all possible permutations are taken… will stick with the one I have. Would be great to get the Twitter handles of the people taking the challenge as well….

  4. AnnaLeeConti

    I have been on Twitter since 2013 @AnnaLeeConti. I added a few from your list above, but I need more followers before I can follow very many more. That rule is frustrating!

    I do have a question related to yesterday’s challenge. I have been on Facebook for a couple of years. Should I set up a separate Facebook page for my e-mail/blog? My previous account has only been open to “friends”. If I am going to have my page open to “public” I think I want to create another page but I’m not sure. What is your opinion?
