Twitter really is a melting pot of personalities across all facets of news, entertainment, comedy and more.
While you’ll find the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly across the Twitterverse, the best part about Twitter is that you can choose to only follow users whose subject matter interests you, and don’t necessarily have to deal with annoying/shitty tweets from people you’d rather never hear about ever again (we’re looking at you, Donald Trump’s Twitter).
We’ve put together a definitive list of people you should be following on the platform that’ll totally ~enrich~ your Twitter experience.
For Political Talk…
When Childish Gambino tells us to ‘stay woke’ he’s talking about these guys. Unafraid to call out the big names on their bullshit, these guys keep us up to date on the political happenings across the world. For example, journalist Lauren Duca, who wrote an article for Teen Vogue in December 2016 titled ‘Donald Trump is Gaslighting America’ was blasted by haters who told her she “should stick to the thigh-high boots.” In turn, Lauren created a blog called “Thigh-High Politics,” and still continues to stand up against her haters who believe women have no place in political commentary. Talk about #GirlPower!

Why in 2017 are female athletes still wearing dresses? They're not the most efficient clothing. If they were male athletes would wear them.

One of our fave things about Twitter is how it’s opened up a whole new world in regards to how we see celebs. While some accounts are obvs run by a star’s PR rep, some just prefer to go the no filter route – and we love them for it.
