Normally “who to follow on twitter” posts are full of obvious, preaching to the choir, rich-get-richer accounts–a who’s who of edu-twitter users you probably already follow anyway. In response, we decided to create a different kind of list–people worth following with fewer than 1000 followers.
By the time we got around to publishing this, a few accounts we had listed crept over 1000 followers. We kept a few of them, removed the rest, and the result is what you see below–an intentionally diverse set of educators on twitter. From elementary to university, edtech to Luddites, those who focus on sharing student work versus those who share their opinion, and more.
