Top 10 Buddhist Twitter peeps you should Follow. ~ via William Harryman

Buddhism in the Twitterverse

by William Harryman

The assignment: to write an article on the top ten Buddhist Twitter users.

I’ve never been very good at following directions. As I went through the Buddhists that I follow on Twitter, it quickly became apparent that there are those who are well known as magazines, meditation teachers, and writers. Then there are monks, lay Buddhists, and others who tweet on Buddhism but are not so well known.

[As an aside, Soren Gordhamer recently wrote an article for Huffington Post on how to use Twitter as the Buddha might, were he alive to tweet the Dharma.]

So this first group of Twitter users contains a lot of names you might recognize, but all of them are worth following for news and Dharma tweets. The second group is comprised of people you may or may not know, but who certainly have a lot to add. Consequently, there will be more than the requested ten names.

Go read the article to see who I picked - and PLEASE, there are many deserving people I just have not come across yet.
