I had fun compiling this list. It’s made up of my top 40 accounts on Twitter for scuba divers to follow. Criteria for selection were that they are active and involved. I’ve steered away from accounts which have an auto RSS/Facebook feed, unless they were exceptional. These are accounts where you can have an actual conversation and are in no particular order. So, let’s dive in!
