Swift Suggests: 5 Twitter Accounts to Follow in 2018

Whether you’re a regular twitter user or new to the platform, our team at Swift Social have come together to suggest 5 twitter users to be following in 2018. Twitter has become a powerful platform where voices can be heard louder than ever, both for good and bad. Here we look at 5 Twitter users who you should be following this year.

1. Donald J Trump

To say that the 45th President of the United States is a polarising figure would be a gross understatement, but it’s this unpredictability that makes him a must follow on twitter if for nothing more than a pre-warning to know when to head into the nuclear bunker. On a serious note, never before has a man of such power and status been so care free and unfiltered on social media, we truly are witnessing history being made with ever tweet, so for this reason alone we think that everyone should be following Donald Trump.

In case you missed some of his 2017 highlights we have shared a few of his more famous twitter gaffes below.

Like the time he called Hilary Clinton a loser…on twitter 😲

Or when he told off the British Prime Minister…on twitter 🤦‍♀️

And who can forget the word of 2017… ‘Covfefe’

2. Vitalik Buterin

A name that not many may have heard, but this 25 yr old had one of the biggest influences on the world in the latter half of 2017 and will continue to do so. He is the founder of the cryptocurrency Ethereum and a prominent voice in the world of Crypto.

A world that is only going to be going more Crypto mad in 2018, should remain informed. Vitalik is your man. 🤑

3. Barack Obama

The man that most of the world wishes was still POTUS, Barack Obama will be one to follow in 2018. Whether it’s just him being adorable with his wife Michelle and family or keeping tabs on his humanitarian efforts with the Obama Foundation, it’s always nice to have some Obama in our lives.

Our 2017 Highlights were his 2017 Highlights. The former President took to twitter at the end of the year to post stories from 2017 that he felt were more newsworthy than a lot of the stories covered by the media. Thank you Mr President.

And let’s not forget this…

4. JK Rowling

JK Rowling has long been a force on twitter with some of the most scathing and strong responses about topical issues. If it’s entertainment you’re after she doesn’t just write good books, she writes some burning truth too! 🔥

Like the time a guy tried to shut her down for “writing books about a Nerd”

Or the recent calling out of Dave and his fake European friend.

Miss Rowling holds no prisoners. Watch out!

5. Elon Musk

If a man who is responsible for SpaceX, The Boring Company, Tesla and Paypal doesn’t spike your interest then maybe the fact that this guy put a car in orbit will. Yup. That guy.

Arguably one of the world biggest cultural changers, Elon Musk and his Companies have successfully launched and landed re-usable space rockets, started boring tunnels under LA to magnetically transport vehicles at crazy speeds and brought the electric car into the mainstream, and if that wasn’t enough? His twitter game is strong…

Like when he described the birth of Tesla in 5 Tweets

God Bless you Mr Musk. Keep the world moving forward.
