50 of the best Australian authors and writers on Twitter

I'm working on a little surprise here at the Fibro, and it made me realise that there's a hole in my posting schedule. Despite my general references to Twitter and writers on a regular basis, I've never brought the two together. What an oversight!

Anyway, to rectify that, I've decided to put together a list (in no particular order) of my favourite Australian authors, writers and bloggers on Twitter. They're all great with the written word, but that's not why they made this list. There are a lot of great Australian authors, whose books and writing I love, who are not here.

This list is about people who are also great with 140 characters. They play with Twitter the way that it should be played. With wit, with sparkle, with charm, with intent, with humour, with smarts, with engagement - sometimes all at once.

They're worth a follow.


Writers and bloggers

  1. Nice list. There's a few finds in there, thanks. I would probably add:
