Top 100+ Fire/EMS Twitter Users – Are you included?

firecritic156twitterI have compiled a list of twitter users that I feel are the top 100. I realize that this list may change in the future with the addition of new users. Some time in the future I might revisit the list. Until then, enjoy the list. I will tell you that the list was based on the following criteria…had followers and tweeted about fire/ems news, information, and topics. I apologize but I did not incorporate twitter users who tweeted about going to and from the grocery store no matter how many followers they had.

Be sure to follow me by the way…@FireCritic

Feel free to add your username in the comments! Here is a word to the wise…join wefollow and sign up with tags that relate to yourself. Examples = #Fire, #Firefighter, #Firefighting, #Paramedic, #EMS, #EMT.

The list is not in any particular order and in case you are counting I think the actual number is 112.
