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

This 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).

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!
