7 Twitter accounts every progressive should follow
Who do you follow on Twitter? What progressives have the most interesting feeds and share the best information? Here is our list of some thoughts that people in the CREDO Mobile HQ office had about who you should follow on Twitter.
Of course we have to start with Senator Elizabeth Warren. If you are not following @ElizabethForMA you are missing out. No account on Twitter has gotten more under Donald Trump’s skin or made him more irritated.
Explain why you want to let Wall Street off the hook, @realDonaldTrump. https://t.co/5tpKNIjVdt

Cha Lorena is a staff attorney with the ACLU’s LGBT & AIDS Project. He also founded the Lorena Borjas Community Fund, which provides direct bail/bond assistance to LGBTQ immigrants in criminal and immigration cases. His legal expertise in these areas is unmatched, as is the insight he shares on Twitter.
Just landed in Charlotte (four hours delayed) for tomorrow’s HB2 hearing. We are going to Court against McCrory et al. for trans folks.

Imani Gandy wears many hats. She is the Senior Legal Analyst at Rewire News, the co-host of This Week in Blackness, and a prolific tweeter on issues of race and gender equality. Her writing is punchy and powerful, just as Twitter should be.

Linda Sarsour is the executive director of the Arab American Association of New York and co-founded MPower. President Obama named her a “champion of change” for her civil rights activism, in particular on behalf of the Muslim community.
Tired of the obsession w/ Muslim women and who you think we are and are capable of. We define us. We tell our own stories. #CanYouHearUsNow
