Psychologists who Tweet – second major update

Update July 2013 – unfortunately the list grew too unwieldy for a full revision. However, we’ve published a new list of the 100 most-followed psychologists and neuroscientists on Twitter

This is the second major update of our list of psychologists (plus a few stray neuroscientists, therapists, students and psych-bloggers) who Tweet. Follower counts were correct as of late August / early Sept 2011. Compare with the first and second versions of the list compiled in November 2010 and March 2011. The Digest feeds and editorial team are in purple highlight.
