In the last year, the number of websites hopping onto Twitter has exploded. For the green blogosphere in particular, we’ve discovered a new way to communicate not just green news and ideas — but also rally support for important legislation, causes, and initiatives. It’s also become a more tight-knit group of greenies having conversations in 140 characters (or less), sharing news, and driving traffic.
For all the eco-related websites on Twitter, there are a few that are garnering massive follows. Sure, they’re a fraction of what Ashton Kutcher or even Al Gore might command — but even numbers in the tens of thousands can benefit greatly.
In creating this list, I did my best to stack up all the green sites out there on Twitter against each other and rank according to followers. The majority are doing incredibly well in the 10,000 and below range — but these 10 represent those that have jumped beyond that number. I also did my best to concentrate on those sites with a heavy focus on green journalism — so even though Live Earth may have a blog, I consider it more of a green non-profit organization than a “green blog”. Planet Green barely squeaked by because of their heavy focus on original green stories online.
Obviously, this list is only valid for a short period of time. Especially regarding the last 4 or 5 listed; separated by 1,000 followers or less.
