Top 100 WordPress People to Follow on Twitter

As a new (or even experienced) Twitter user, it can be hard at first to know exactly who you should be following. You can start with the Twitter elite, those users who are considered the elite of Twitter because of high follower counts. The problem with following just the Twitter elite, however, is that you’ll rarely be able to start a good conversation, and I don’t think that any of them have the intention to partake in WordPress-related topics.

So here’s a different list … more WordPress people to follow than you can shake a stick at:
