Responding to Lisa Neilsen’s recent post: Unfollowing everyone but my very favorites on Twitter
I observed in the comments that her Top 25 were all American or Canadian, so in the spirit of you don’t know what you don’t know, here are 25 Non-North American Tweeters that I enjoy. They are in no particular order and as I pointed out to Lisa, I have a long way to go before my list is well balanced and inclusive of educator perspectives all around the world. I only read Tweets in English and from mainly Westernised countries, as I have said before in the past, everyone’s a potential hypocrite and I am no different.

So, you can see that my Top 25 still only covers a limited number of countries. This doesn’t mean that there are great Tweeters from North America that I follow. There are – but the world is a bigger place than the top half of America. And I didn’t even need to include myself in the list
Actually, if I weren’t me, I probably wouldn’t bother following myself on Twitter.
