best twitter lists to followYou’ve heard it before: Twitter is a firehose!

So how do you keep up with important tweets without having to scan your Twitter feed nonstop?

Two words: Twitter lists

I recently wrote about Twitter lists & showed you how to build your own lists to follow your favorite niches.

After that post, a friend asked me how to follow awesome Twitter lists without creating them yourself.

Here’s my answer! :)

In this post I’ll highlight 101 awesome Twitter lists — created by tweeters from all walks of life.

I’ve arranged the lists in categories like:

  • Social Media
  • Startups & Tech
  • Venture Capital
  • Journalists/News
  • Women
  • Businesses
  • Advertising & Marketing
  • Tools
  • Sports
  • Lifestyle, Beauty & Fashion
  • Health & Fitness
  • Food
  • Travel

And yes, I spent hours & drank loads of coffee compiling these lists.

So please enjoy them! :)
