Feeling Lost? Follow these Top 50 Travel Twitters!

Below is the Top 50 Travel Twitters. It is a mixture of media, corporate and independent travel blogs offering tweets on anything from green travel to cheap flights. I don’t believe that the number of twitter followers equates to a better Twitter and as such the list below is very subjective and not in any particular order.

I personally follow each and every one of these Twitters. If there any gems I have missed leave a comment. Finally, as these lists take considerable time to compile, if you found this useful, please re-tweet.

    Interesting list to be honest – but I do feel somewhat orientated towards the US traveller.

    We have found that there are plenty of really witty UK and Australian bloggers since spending a bit of time travel blogging ourselves.

    BTW – Like your story about the tree jump.

    great idea finding top travel tweets. There are alot of bogus ones out there selling stuff so a new list is pretty cool. We have a twitter account for Abandon the Cube, but recently we’ve just been posting about USA travel (aka: why is wal-mart such a scary place, and why is the TV show LOST going downhill so fast?)AKA- not about travel so much as a constant scratching of the head at being back in the homeland.

    OurLittleJaunt – If you have any examples please post them here I would love to have a look.

    Lauren – Lost is going downhill fast. I just saw the premier. I would rather watch Heroes!

    Thanks for this list. Maybe a list of the top 100 would be helpful too, especially one based on retweetrank (shows valuable content by frequency of Twitterers’ retweets). I would have also included these (in no particular order): @Journeywoman, @MyMelange, @thetripchicks, @BrilliantTips, @PatriciaVance, @Marilyn_Res, @johnnyjet, @Farwriter, @TravelNewsFeeds, @PatriciaVance, @SpotCoolStuff, @worldhum, @earthXplorer, @cestbeth, @rtwdave, @donnadeau, @jkheaton, @brianepeters, @joanna_haugen, @niltiac, and @chrisguillebeau. Lots of great travel experts in Twitterville!

    Sorry…I listed @PatriciaVance twice by mistake, and now see @worldhum was already on your honorable mentions list.

    Thanks so much for compiling a great list and including us at @soultravelers3!

    There are even some that I haven’t heard about yet & we got to Twitter early as it’s been a great tool for our open ended family world tour that we have been on since 2006!

    I have a few great Twitter lists of travelers & digital nomads if people are looking for more.

    Here are a few more great ones that you missed ( I know, there are soooooo many great travel twitter folks now):

    @Sheilas
    @wendyperrin
    @earthXplorer
    @Marilyn_Res
    @globtrav

    some that we like:

    (I know that some are corporate – but the guides in CX are amazing, STA is a good networking medium for travellers, and flyairnz is massively discounting)

    People:

    @aussie_ian
    @vagaroam
    @GapYearEscape
    @traveltipsaustr
    @TravelingEditor – think you had this one.

    Corporate:

    @statravelbuzz
    @grabaseat – NZ airline last minute flights
    @flyairnz –
    @cathaypacific

    Just a few from my Tweetdeck.

    OurLittleJaunt. 🙂

    You´ve put together a really great list. Thanks for compiling it. If you ever think of updating the list, I´d love if you would consider me. My tweets are always travel focused and`often have what I call a who knew factor. I try to tweet about surprising finds along the way.
