With more than 320 million monthly active Twitter users sending updates in more than 35 languages, it should come as no surprise that the world relies heavily on Twitter to stay informed. In fact, a recent survey from the Pew Research Center found that nearly two-thirds of adults who use Twitter also get their news on the platform. The American Press Institute also found that Twitter users tend to consume more news than other social media users. Indeed, following journalists and publications via Twitter is now one of the quickest and most efficient ways to consume a day’s worth of content and breaking news in a short period of time.

With platforms like Hootsuite and Tweet Deck, you can also create your own list of individuals and organizations to follow that are targeted to your interest areas—whether it be philanthropy, social innovation, impact investing, Millennial engagement, inclusive entrepreneurship or all of the above. For the best in reporting and breaking news, the communications team at the Case Foundation has compiled a list of journalists and publications that should be on your radar.

You can follow the full list HERE. And if you want to see what’s on the Case Foundation’s radar be sure to follow us at @CaseFoundation, as well as follow our CEO @JeanCase and Chairman @Steve Case.

We’ve grouped our suggestions below (by issue area) in no particular order. Don’t see someone who should be on the list? Tell us who we should add by tweeting to us at @CaseFoundation with the hashtag #News4Good.
