Top 100 Travel Tweeters of 2015: Wanderlust in 140 Characters

I’m getting a jump start on 2015 by highlighting the top travel tweeters in the business. This massive list (which took forever to make) is sure to bring you all you need when it comes to travel inspiration and information.

My goal is to bring every single person that reads this epic list of social media wanderlust-inducing brilliance, at least a handful of brand new Profiles, travel blogs and wanderers to their attention, by scrounging the very corners of the Twitter Earth to find these travel tweeters. This list is arranged only by follower numbers, and has no bearing on the quality of the blog itself. In fact, some of the profiles listed at the very bottom are my very favorite! So open you twitter page and get ready to do some following, because there is plenty here you’ll like.

Disclaimer: The descriptions of each profile were taken directly from each one. Why? Because there’s 100 of them and I can’t be bothered to write my own!

    A list full of awesomeness! Thanks for thinking of me. Wish we could get a get together with everyone of these travellers. Where would we hold the party??

  2. GlobalmouseonReply

    Great list – must have taken ages to put together!! Next time I hope @globalmouse1 might make it with 12,000 followers 🙂

    Great List, Justin. I have 2 that are a crazy good time if you’re into that sort of stuff (I totally understand if you’d rather avoid those things)

    @mywanderlist (33,000) 89 Countries: Danced with Corpses in Africa, Hitchhiked Saudi Arabia, Lived with Sea Gypsies, Tattoos Hammered-in by Headhunters… Unapologetically Curious

    @thebestintravel (27,400) Purveyor of the World’s Finest Travel Experiences. Tweeting the best in travel from the world’s best travel blogs at the perfect time.

      Cool man, I’m not avoiding anyone, its just that there are so many out there that I couldn’t know them all. And its way too late to add them now. Next time

    Epic list, Justin! I know you couldn’t catch everyone, but @backroad_planet with 7.2K followers would love to make the list next time. Cheers!

  5. Gabor KovacsonReply

    You missed @surfingplanet with almost 15k followers. actually i already asked you to include us when you published your last list, maybe next time….

  6. Shane Dallas (The Travel Camel)onReply

    Sincere thanks to you Justin for including me on your Top 100 again. I really appreciate your enormous work in compiling this list.

  7. Eric @ Trans-Americas JourneyonReply

    You missed us – @TransAmericas with 5,281 followers.

    However, I have to say the number of followers is a pretty irrelevant number when not looked at in light of the ratio of followers to following. For example if I had followed back every person who has followed us since we’ve been on Twitter since 2009 we’d probably have well over 20K followers…and then there are auto-follow programs. However, we’re very selective in who we follow only following 591 to our 5,281.

    As an example to take a semi-random selection #18 @wdunlap – 72.4k followers…, oops now 74.7k followers (gee, I wonder if he uses an auto-follow program) to 72.8k following is an unimpressive ratio of 0.95 follows to followers.
    Whereas someone like lowly #96 @rolfpotts – 6.56k followers – 947 following is certainly more impressive and relevant with a ratio of 0.14 follows to followers. Something close to our 0.17 ;).
    Anyone who has been on twitter for more than a few years can easily rank in the top half of this list based on followers. I bet the vast majority of the list has a ratio of more than 0.8 follows to followers which make someone like #17 @NomadicMatt – 76.8k followers and a ratio of 0.027 particularly impressive.

      Well like I said at the beginning, the list is sorted by follower numbers, but that doesnt make the top ones more interesting then the bottom. But if you have it all figured out, let me know whats a better way to categorize over 100 twitter profiles. I’m all ears.

    2. Brad BernardonReply

      That’s a better measure of ego, Eric. If you’re more impressed by your ratio than your engagement, I’d say good luck to you my friend.

  8. BethonReply

    Great list! I’ve got to go and make sure I’m following everyone now! Hopefully I’ll make the cut next year, I’ve got 26k (@translatetravel) 😉

  9. Mariellen WardonReply

    Hiya, great list, and I will make sure I am following them all. You could of course easily do another list as you missed lots of great travel tweeters 🙂 I have 15K followers and founded #WEGOOLO, the twitter community for female solo travellers. I’m living in India and there are some great travel bloggers/tweeters here too… so maybe one day you may have to do several lists, cheers.

  10. Nelson MochileroonReply

    Is a very extensive list, congrats for the hard work. But I didn’t find my travel account @mochileros_org

    I’m in twitter since 2010 and have 9.7k followers. Maybe it can be on the list?

  11. Kelsey LoveonReply

    Mahalo for including Travelin’ Fools! Stoked to be a part of such a killer list of travelers. Cheers and Happy (almost) New Year from Maui!

  12. NicoleonReply

    This is a great list of interesting people – would never have considered HONY a wanderlust/travel tweeter but thinking about it I guess he is, especially with his stint with the UN.

    You missed plenty of great travel tweeters – any one of the #TTOT co-hosts, @BordersofAdv, @WildJunket, @livesharetravel, @TheTravelHack, @OneikaTraveller, @DTravelsRound, @thisgirlloves_, @yTravelBlog…. the list goes on! (Oh, and me… @NicoleTravelBug!)

  13. Lisa @ Happy Holidays GuidesonReply

    Thanks for compiling a scannable, easy-to-skim list. There are so many travel tweeters out there it’s refreshing to see familiar faces all on one page. Cheers and Happy New Year! ~Lisa @ HHG

  14. Geert @ Inspiring TravellersonReply

    Great list Justin, like the one before.. I’ll make sure to tweet it out!
    But it would be great if you could include ( @InspirngTrvlrs ) next time!


  15. BeckionReply

    Great list although soooo many travel greats missed off. Maybe next time you wi have to make it a Top 200! Or more…

    You are missing mine – @bordersofadv with over 12K 😉

  16. Karisa @ Flirting with the GlobeonReply

    I imagine that took quite a bit of time! Great list – I’m excited to be included and can’t wait to check out the other bloggers that I don’t already follow! 🙂

  17. Rishabh & Nirali @ gypsycoupleonReply

    Would love to be a part of this list by next year. we’ve just started and have a very modest following of us 2.1K but hope to be up there with the best with hopefully good content to share, a devoted following and some luck:)

    Hope some of the commenters here take out the time to visit our blog at 🙂

    Lists like these are great! Thank you for opening my eyes to many bloggers I had not heard of yet. Good luck in the new year! 🙂

  21. ChrisonReply

    I’m a little late to the party but I’ll put that down to too much fun over the festive break. Thanks for the mention and more so for all the time it would have taken to create the list.

  22. Michela of Rocky Travel BlogonReply

    What a great list! You missed Rocky Travel blog though, with 8320 followers! Maybe you can consider it with your next update! Thanks 🙂
