Progressives to follow on Twitter
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.

Cha Lorena is a staff attorney with the ACLU 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.

Imani Gandy wears many hats. She is Rewire News’s Senior Legal Analyst, 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.
