Top 100 Most Popular Individual/Personal Irish Tweeters #TwitterVIPs updated with @katietaylor

I've yet to come across an accurate ‘Top X’ list of Irish Tweeters. Every list I have ever found had glaring gaps.

So what I'm attempting to do here, is to create and update an accurate list of the Most Popular Twitter Accounts. You can decide yourself whether they are influential, or worth following. What this is list is, is simply a list indicating Popularity on Twitter according to the number of followers.

As mentioned at the bottom of this article, feedback is absolutely wanted.

Hashtag #TwitterVIPs

Considering I have never been able to find an accurate list by someone else - I can only assume that I could have some gaps in this list. However if you would be so kind as to let me know in the commments, or tweet me - - I'm not on the list!!!! - or get me through any of the Social Media, whatever suits! #TwitterVIPs

Big thanks to Ciamh McCrory, Brian Shanley for letting me know I missed someone in the top 10, Sinéad Desmond for letting me know about a mistake, and to @LisaHafey for Jedward info!

I've the top 100 Business accounts to upload next week, along with lists of specific categories - so do follow/stay tuned if you are interested in more!
