Who do educators follow on Twitter?

As part of my doctoral research I surveyed educators about the people they choose to follow on Twitter. Those who completed the online survey indicated that they follow a variety of people ranging from celebrities (n=18, 15.3%) and students (n=18, 15.3%) to family and friends (n=65, 55.1%), peers (n=80, 67.8%), experts (n=97, 82.2%) and colleagues (n=103, 87.3%). It can be seen from the graph below that the microblogging networks of the educators in this study largely consist of colleagues, experts and peers.
