Massive Online Community Manager Twitter list – are you on it? (updated)

follow find community managers on twitterAs I research new thought on online community management and connect with community managers around the globe, I come across an increasing number of practitioners. When Twitter launched their Lists functionality, I thought I’d put it to good use and keep track of all these people in one place.

At this early stage, I don’t follow a particular methodology (which I am starting to regret as the list grows). I am considering splitting the list up into ones based on nationality, if only because industry lists would be too hard to manage as people move jobs. If you have any suggestions on how I should proceed, please post them in the comments section!

The bottom line is that to make this list, the person had to have a Twitter account, mention that they were a community manager in their bio, and that this held up when I did a LinkedIn search for them to confirm their employment.

I have now updated this post with the second list of Community Managers on Twitter. You can find it below!

Of course, this means the list is far from definitive, and can be a bit difficult to read due to the number of foreign languages involved, but is a great way to get a snapshot of what is going on with Community Managers in different countries.

As this initial list is close to breaking through the limit of 500 twitter accounts, I will be starting a second one and will link to both (and any future ones) in this post.

You can follow the list of Online Community Managers here:

Here are the latest updates:

List 2:

If you are not on either list and would like to be, or know anyone who is missing, let me know in the comments section.

    I would appreciate a list of Community hosts of online newsmedia.

    Also, people who use the handle “community manager” can have wildly different jobs. To be able to create groups we'll have to come up first with a typology of communities.

    …which is probably why I decided against segmentation at the time I started the list – too much of a headache trying to split people into categories!

    I've seen a list of social media managers/editors of digital news sites, but not community managers. I could do one for the UK but there aren't that many at all. Which again leads to the question of whether it's worth doing it by industry? For me anyway, I've touched upon quite a few industries in my career so would my membership on a list would quickly become out of date…
