The Top 100 Theatre Tweeters You Must Follow on Twitter - 2011 Edition!
Last year, I wrote one of my most popular columns ever: the 100 Theatre Tweeters you MUST follow. Ever since, I've been getting emails from both new and veteran tweeters, asking me when I might update the list. And as new shows emerge and new actors, directors, creative teams, and Broadway fans join our favorite social networking site, it has become clear that last November's list has become outdated.
So, I bring you to the new & improved Top 100 Theatre Tweeters you MUST follow on Twitter!!
You guys, this was hard. There are so many intelligent Broadway-related twitter feeds now that when I made my list of finalists, it numbered nearly twice than I had room for on the list!! Narrowing it down took days, and every time I thought I had it finished, a series of brilliant tweets would appear that made me question my decision. Many times I had to remind myself that too many great theatre tweeters is actually a very nice problem to have.
As I did with last year's list (which you can view here), let me preface the list by telling you what it's NOT:
It's not a list of the most famous Broadway folks on twitter.
It's not a list of my favorite PEOPLE on Broadway -- I judged purely on the quality, quantity, and Broadway-relevance of the tweets
It is not a ranked list. Everyone is in alphabetical order.
It is absolutely NOT a complete list of those worth following on twitter!!
This is simply, and completely subjectively, MY top 100 Theatre Tweeters, right at THIS moment in time.
Of course, I encourage you to chime in and discuss enthusiastically. Who are YOUR favorite twitterers on Broadway?
