10 of the best Twitter wine feeds to follow

Everything happens first on Twitter, apparently, or perhaps now it’s Instagram? News is broken, views are shaped, relationships are forged. For better or worse, social media has changed the way we communicate about pretty much everything, including wine.

Twitter’s 328 million users post on average 6,000 tweets every second

The first ever tweet was sent on 21 March 2006, making the social media platform 11 years old this year, and was posted by co-founder Jack Dorsey (@jack – try and find a single name handle today). It simply read: “just setting up my twttr.” Not exactly a groundbreaking sentiment, but five words that were to start a communication revolution.

Today there are 328 million Twitter users world wide, who collectively post on average 6,000 tweets per second, more than 350,000 per minute and 500 million tweets per day, averaging around 200 billion tweets per year.

There aren’t many, if any, industries or interests that Twitter (and now other social media platforms) have not touched, least of all wine. It offers wine writers, winemakers, sommeliers and buyers a quick and easy way to reach their target audience, talk about wine, receive feedback, share news and generally vent their spleen.

The following list features a very small segment of some of the drinks business’ favourite Twitter accounts, all of which are focused on wine. Some are thoroughly informative, others highly entertaining, but all are interesting.

Of course, we would first recommend that you follow the drinks business @teamdb for expert news, comment and analysis on the international wine, beer and spirits trade, followed by our hard-working editorial team, @Lauren__Eads@LucyLondon, @wineguroo, @ArabellaMileham and @phoebe_french1. But when you’re done with us, the following accounts are well worth a look.
