Our Favorite Shark Week Tweeps

Shark Week is the perfect time to let you know who are our favorite people to follow on Twitter. Some of them may even tweet their thoughts during this year's shows (HINT: Megalodon went extinct a few millions years ago). These are accounts for people and organizations who save sharks, study sharks, work with sharks, or talk about sharks. These are listed in no particular order, but we'll start with the ginger who occasionally blogs for us. Make sure you follow us, too. We'll be live tweeting all week during Shark Week, starting at 4 PM tomorrow.
