50 Best Twitter Feeds about the Middle East
Tools such as Klout and Twittergrader are sometimes used for lists like these, but here they would have tilted the results toward the large Twitter communities of Saudi Arabia and Egypt, for example. For smaller countries, including some where Twitter isn't widely used, we drew on suggestions from tweeps themselves, as well as the numbers.
Obviously the list is subjective, and by no means exhaustive. The list is limited to those who tweet in English, although some users throw in some Arabic or French.
