The Blacklist: 20 Accounts You Must Follow On Black Twitter [PHOTOS]

 

Black Twitter became a mainstream buzz term late last year after receiving top billing in a Wikipedia article. Developed from within the fast moving Twitter network, this growing cultural subset has become a powerful collective of varying minds from all corners of the world.

Although Black Twitter has attracted some media attention for its ability to roast people for a variety of reasons, there are some within that group that have sway in the world of media, academics, music and other fields. From humorous quips to challenging racism, the group morphed into something valuable in the crowded spaces of social media where many Black folks are often shut out.

Hip-Hop Wired has complied a list of 20 accounts you should follow on Twitter. Some of them are known for jokes, others are good for a debate. Whatever you’re into, this list should have you covered. Let us know in the comments if we missed anyone.

      I disagree, Joe Budden was the 1st one to start saying black twitter, then it caught on with everybody

  • Craig

    Terrible list by the way, only 6 were legit good follows the rest were ignorance, I saw no black people that make u think all I saw was wanna be comedians. Black people have more to offer than jokes, and being funny isn’t what Black twitter represents in the 1st place black twitter is the culmination of black people an their interests and topics at any given moment an shucking an jiving aint it, twitter is more powerful than y’all realize I guess.

      Did you read the story or just look at the names?

      • Craig

        Both. The story doesnt match the names. Read this line>>> Although Black Twitter has attracted some media attention for its ability to roast people for a variety of reasons.
