Our goal at Secular Action is to provide as many atheist resources as possible. Twitter is a great resource for the latest trends and news, and it’s another easy way to out yourself as an atheist. Follow these people on twitter so they can have more followers and gain more notoriety. Then your friends see you promote science and reason. You stay up to date on the latest science and skeptical news, and you can share that information with others.
