1. Euromaidan PR
@EuromaidanPR claims to be the official feed of the protesters, and obviously comes with all the caveats you'd expect. But it's often the quickest way to find out about developments and what people on the ground are thinking about them. Sometimes posts quite graphic pictures, especially as the violence has escalated.
@Euromaidan is another feed written by activists on the ground. Its stuff is mainly in Ukrainian, but it tweets a good amount of pictures and video.
3. Max Seddon
@maxseddon is a foreign reporter at BuzzFeed. He has been among the most consistent of reporters on the Ukraine, on both his Twitter feed and on Buzzfeed.
@KyivPost is the feed of Ukraine's biggest English language newspaper. It covers breaking news in the city fast, as well as providing context on the rest of Ukraine's political developments.
5. Christopher Miller
@ChristopherJM is the editor of the Kyiv Post. He's on the ground and expert at getting Ukrainian news into English, reliably and quickly.
6. Taras Denysenko
@TarasDenysenko has been tweeting developments from early on. He tends also to aggregate pictures and news sources, but is especially good on how the country's political leaders are handling the situation.
7. Kevin O'Flynn
@oflynnkevin is another good aggregator of news sources and people on the ground. He's a Moscow-based journalist.
8. Nikolaus von Twickel
@niktwick has been covering the crisis from early on. He's also a Moscow-based journalist, and is especially good on tweeting out Russian links (even if you have to read them through Google Translate).
9. Bogdan Ovcharuk
@goddan works for Amnesty International Ukraine. He's good at tweeting on the ground reactions from protesters – filling in the human part of the horrifying pictures – as well as tweeting Amnesty and the international community's responses to events.
10. Matt Frei
11. Richard Engel
@RichardEngel is NBC's chief foreign correspondent, and has been tweeting throughout the protests. His stuff has included horrifying pictures of dead bodies waiting inside his hotel room.
12. David M Herszenhorn
@herzenhorn has been following the protests from his role as a reporter for the New York Times in Moscow from very early on – his tweets help set developments in context, as well as offering informed analysis of where they might go.
13. Maria Danilova
@mashadanilova is the Associated Press's correspondent in the Ukraine. She fires out AP news bulletins that are often among the first to report breaking news and always among the most reliable.
14. Shaun Walker
@shaunwalker7 works for the Guardian in Moscow. He's been dividing his time between Russia and the Ukraine – which has allowed him to write interesting work such as an interview with the Ukrainian Olympic skier that has pulled out of Sochi.
15. Henry Langston
@Henry_Langston is new editor for Vice, which has been covering the Ukraine protests from very early on. He tweets more about police and protester clashes than probably any of the journalists above, and so is worth following for colour on what's happening on the ground.
