These are the criteria Beat Blogging used to pick its top tier of Twitter accounts.

These outlets are engaging in conversations, utilizing @replies, #hashtags and retweets. They’re crowd sourcing , building connections with users and acting as guides. These are outlets that get that Twitter can be a fantastic reporting tool and a great way to connect with users.
