Australian Twitter Enthusiasts You Should Not Miss

January 21, 2014

1. Shane Warne


The world’s best spin bowler seems to have built himself a soft spot in the hearts of the ever-forgiving Australian public. No matter his indiscretions, he is always pardoned.

Shane tweets as he lives with very few rules and as honestly and blatantly as is possible. Even though he seems to manage his twitter on his own, he seems to have picked up quite a following.

2. Kevin Rudd


This Australian politician really knows how to use social media to his advantage. He was one of the first few that recognized the importance of twitter and social media, and he seems to have a plan in place to do so.

He tweets quite frequently during the day, covering mostly political issues in the country. Therefore, if you want a recap of the day’s important events in that respect, his twitter is the place to start.

3. Russell Crowe


The Aussie actor does not seem like he is one to keep up with the times and technology, but his massive twitter presence says otherwise. Crowe’s twitter feed is a bit odd at times, because he seems to post a lot of random things such as UFO sightings, however there is some interesting stuff on there as well.

He posts his daily fitness regime and above all his undying love for the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

4. Mark Webber


This motor racing fiend is like a moth to a flame when it comes to racing circuits. His page contains a ton of insider information along with behind the scenes photos.

He uses his page to share his life with his fans, while promoting his Webber Challenge which is a 350 km adventure race located in Tasmania.

5. Tim Cahill


This English Premiere League star has managed to acquire quite an online following over the last year or so. He is very gracious with his appreciation and constantly tells his fans that he is aware of their love and support.

He is also involved in a lot of humanitarian work, which he promotes through his page, including UNICEF, Queensland flood disaster relief the Cancer Council and many more.

6. Michael Clarke


Michael has been a prodigy since the age of 16 and he lived up to everyone’s expectations. Currently the captain of the Australian cricket team, he has used social media to transform his previous ‘bad boy’ image into something more stable.

7. Julia Gillard


If you did not already know, Julia was the first female PM of Australia, and she has maintained a twitter presence for a while now. Her tweets might not come directly from her, but they are informative and interesting nonetheless.

8. Rebel Wilson


Even though she has almost 2 million followers, she still has that down-to-earth approach. Crowned with a wacky sense of humour, she still seems to reply to most of the shouts of her fans.
