26=. Richard Bacon, Broadcaster
The host of BBC Radio 5 Live's afternoon show has few equals when it comes to building a coherent Twitter community. "People get Twitter wrong," he said in interview in 2010. "There's no mob, no leader, no meetings – just a framework in which people express opinions." Bacon's Twitter presence blends seamlessly with his radio presence. He's sourced questions from Twitter to ask guests on his show as a means of creating a "big conversation", and generally maintains a balance between avoiding controversy and being a must-follow.
