Social Situation: Who should you follow?

17 October 2011

Written by: Erdem Koc

Over the past six weeks, we’ve spoken to some of the top social media users from around the world to find out what lessons they’ve learnt online.

Each week we asked our guests to suggest three names that we could add to our Social Situation ‘must follow’ list.

So, with season one all wrapped up we’ve culminated our guests’ suggestions to create one super-list:


Social Situation 1 – Mia Freedman

Social Situation 2 – Anthony De Rosa

Social Situation 3 – Matthew Keys

Social Situation 4 – Amber Mac

Social Situation 5 – Jess Hill

Social Situation 6 – Greg Jericho

  • Roger Ebert – A US film critic who tweets about a range of topics, including American politics. Often sends out great links.
  • Possum Comitatus – Someone who is great to follow for snarky discussion on media, economics and politics.
  • Stephen Koukoulas – Economist, political watcher and former advisor to Prime Minister Gillard. Provides really good commentary on economic issues.


upstart would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Social Situation guests for their time. And we’d also like to thank you – our listeners. Our first season has already received over two-thousands hits.

And, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be back with season two in March of next year.

Until then, keep tweeting!
