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
