100 Tweeters of Social Good You Have to Follow in 2013


This is a re-post from Armchair Advocates

(where social media meets social good). I highly recommend checking out this list and following some -- or all -- of the people on it.


Each year, Armchair Advocates compiles a

list of

top Tweeters

in social good, cause marketing, corporate responsibility and nonprofit technology.  We have enjoyed following and learning from these tech-savvy influencers throughout the year.  This is not an exhaustive list; but we hope these social do-gooders will inspire you to tweet, act, and make a difference.
