I’ve always been a big supporter of Twitter being a social network run by leaders and popularized by followers. With that formula in mind, it’s a celebrity network. You go on Twitter more often to see what your favorite actress or sports figure is up to, not what your friend down the street is doing with his time. It just usually doesn’t work that way.
Thanks to Twitter, we’re put in reach of our favorite celebrities and other important people. Sure, the vast majority of Twitter is retweet spam and younger kids tweeting their every single thought out onto the internet, but it’s nice to know what Ashton Kutcher had for breakfast every now and then, right? Even after the induction of verified accounts, Twitter is still a spam haven when it comes to imposters. Let’s thwart those.
Here are five websites that you can trust and use to point you towards your favorite celebrities on Twitter.
CelebrityTweet will present celebrities on Twitter to you in a multitude of different ways. On the main page, they display the latest tweets by celebrities, graphs and analytics that break down daily tweets, and then a full list of celebrity Twitter accounts in a column to the far right.
AthletesWhoTweet is the sports equivalent of CelebrityTweet. You’re able to see the latest tweets, tweets by sport, and tweets by team. AWT supports the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA (football and basketball), golf, racing, MMA, and more.
It’s my opinion that WeFollow is the best site to go to for this sort of information, namely because of how clean the website is and how much information they present to the user, all on a single page.
On WeFollow, you can find celebrities, musicians, entrepreneurs, news anchors, famous bloggers, tech and TV personalities, and more. You’re also able to search by tags, Twitter cities, and the top users on Twitter overall (by followers). WeFollow offers a lot for one little website.
GRC is a streaming Twitter feed of a huge selection of big names and celebrities. They’ve got actors, athletes, comedians, fashion designers, directors, models, musicians, and politicians, but this is probably the best website to find reality TV stars. Reality TV is the most active of all celebrity subtypes, and GRC does a great job of keeping up with what’s current.
Twitaholic is a service that can present up to the top 1000 most followed users on Twitter. More than that, you’re able to search up yourself (or any other user on Twitter) and get analytics regarding where you are ranked on Twitaholic (by followers) and you’ll be able to see a snapshot of your “Twitter career” that will show your followers, follows, and updates by month.
There are many solutions when it comes to finding famous and interesting personalities to follow after on Twitter. These are a few, and some of the best. If you’re interested in more, check out our Top 15 Tweeting Stars & Celebrities You Really Should Follow article!
