Last year, I wrote a guide to following some of the best games industry peeps on Twitter. And the reaction to it – however little and at the time – was somewhat positive. This year, I’m doing it again. But with one added caveat. There’ll be a limit to the amount of people on the list. I think 100 sounds right (last year’s list had 82 names).

You can find last year’s edition here. And again, if you’re still to follow me, I’m @JohnnyCullen. Otherwise, follow these folk. They are good and awesome people that contain a mix of news, good fun and more. And yes, despite recent events, this includes PRs and folk within the industry who aren’t journalists. Guess that means I’m corrupt or something.

Oh, and this is in no particular order. Just in case anyone thought otherwise (well, except maybe for Donlan).
