I 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.
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.
