I currently follow almost 1,000 people on twitter -- all of them, in some way or another, involved in the world of theatre. I like to get my information from as many sources as possible; but of course, there are those that I look forward to more than the others.

This week, I'm bringing you my top 10% -- in other words, the 100 Theatre Tweeters you MUST follow.

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 the most frequent tweeters on Broadway.
- It's certainly not a complete list of those worth following.

It is simply, and completely objectively, MY top 100 Theatre Tweeters.

Don't agree with my choices? Or think of someone I've glaringly omitted? I invite your rants and raves in the comments below -- or of course, on twitter @ BroadwayGirlNYC. Visit BroadwayWorld.com's Twitter Watch for more Theatre on Twitter too!

The critic covers theatre in the San Francisco Bay Area, and travels to NYC and abroad regularly to see shows. Bonus: free Glee tracks on the blog every week!
