A little bird told me III: Top 10 international tweeps

Top 10 international twitter accounts. Inclusion on my lists does not imply endorsement or support for these organizations; it’s just that they are some of the tweeps I follow to keep me informed about what’s going on in immigration, multiculturalism, diversity and etc. And, as in previous editions of this series, I’ve included the bio provided by the tweep itself in quotations, with my comments following. This list is overly American, I know. Please send suggestions for more international flavours.

  1. http://twitter.com/CitiesMigration ~ “An international project showcasing innovative ideas on immigrant integration from major cities across the world”.
  2. http://twitter.com/migrationwatch ~ “(A)n independent think tank chaired by Sir Andrew Green. We have a distinguished Advisory Council from diverse ethnic and professional backgrounds”. The UK. Interestingly, they don’t follow anyone.
