Kirstine Stewart

As head of Twitter Canada, Stewart knows a thing or two about social media and sharing stories online. She’s got well over 28,000 followers, and her messaging is all about marketing, tweeting (obvi!), life in Toronto and charity. It’s a rocking read for any woman aspiring to break the glass ceiling.

Jann Arden

It’s no surprise that one of Canada’s most famous and talented songstresses is also one of the most profound Twitter users. From her lessons on “getting the most out of life” to her random observations about places across our home and native land, Arden‘s stream does not disappoint.

Though Lisa Tant is no longer the editor-in-chief of Canada’s fashion magazine Flare, she is still — and always will be — this nation’s Anna Wintour (only nicer). Tant now heads up exclusive services at Holt Renfrew, and her feed is full of breaking fashion and style news as well as tidbits about how the luxurious set spend their time.

Margaret Atwood

If you need only one reason to follow Margaret Atwood, then it’s that she very publicly took on Toronto mayor Rob Ford and his brother via the social media feed (she called them out for being — and we’re paraphrasing here — lacklustre at their jobs). Atwood is an artist, famed author and devoted Torontonian, and as such, her tweets are both sassy and motivational.

Tech talk at its finest is posted to Twitter courtesy of this wonder-woman, Amber Mac.

Bonnie Fuller

Though Fuller now lives in the U.S., we still claim her for our own. A former editor at Flare, she is perhaps best known for her turn as editor of Us Weekly — she’s credited for transforming the way entertainment and celebrities are covered by the press. Today she runs her own media company and a website (which is full of gossipy tidbits), HollywoodLife.com.

Want to get an honest education in all things Hollywood? Look no further than the candid Twitter musings from Elaine Lui — a.k.a. Lainey Gossip.

Pamela Anderson

This nation’s blond bombshell is so, so much more than her Baywatch roots would lead one to believe.
