60+ Northern Ireland journalists, broadcasters and media outlets you should follow

UPDATE: This remains one of the most requested pages on this blog. It is now a bit out of date. I will update it and similar pages in the over the summer. Please regard it as a starting point and add any other names and handles in the comments section. Cheers.

UPDATE ON UPDATE: Well, didn’t quite get round to updating this page … maybe sometime …

As a piece of research for WIMPS.tv I’ve compiled a list of journalists broadcasters and media outlets who I suggest you follow on Twitter.

This – I expect – will be version 1. There are people missing from the list, I am sure. If you want to add some people (or yourself) please do.

The list is random – it’s just how the names appeared.
