Over 218 million people actively use Twitter, and very few excel at it. Perhaps it's because Twitter dictates that users restrict their brilliance, pathos, wit, bon mots, kvetching, and self-promotion to 140 characters at a time. Maybe it's because some of them aren't real people, they're just bots. And some definitely have to toe the corporate line and eschew any creativity.
What some see as a limit, others see as a challenge, and it's the latter we celebrate here.They're the Twitter-verse's experts and most readable posters out of the 500 million tweets posted per day. That's about 5,700 per second, with the most ever made142.199 tweets per secondthanks to Japanese users. That's a big step up from 2010 when tweets about the World Cup brought the service to its virtual knees with 3,051 tweets per second.
These are the few I was able to sort out. Of course, there are many more individuals out there worth following, and suggestions are welcomed in the comments below.
Mallam Nasir El- Rufai
Mallam Nasir El Rufai always has something to say about any ongoing crisis in the country. It would be remarkable to let you that he posted a video of President Goodluck Jonathan dancing with a woman while the country was in chaos over the missing Chibok girls. The former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja from 16 July 2003 to 29 May 2007 is a member of All Progressives Congress (APC). You can follow him on Twitter:@elrufai
Oby, who is a former federal Minister of Solid Minerals and then Education during the second term presidency of Olusegun Obasanjo, is a force to reckon with on Twitter. She is what can be called the political mother and fighter of the Chibok girls. She spits out venom like a man in anger when issues about the kidnapped Chibok girls are left unattended to. Oby Ezekwisili describes herself on her twitter page as a ‘fiercely passionate believer in the public good of nations, serving before leading. Validated by God& my Dad who taught me to never dignify nonsense.’ You surely need to follow this politician! @obyezeks
