99 Twitter Accounts To Follow For Today's #NoNATO Actions In The Streets

As is becoming increasingly evident, the actions surrounding NATO add up to a perpetual protest. There's no beginning or end, with shit popping from activist crash pads to streets across the city, where clashes with police are getting more frequent and more intense around every corner. In the past few days I've had countless conversations with journalists, Occupiers, and every type of reporter and aggregator in-between about how most of us won't be able to file extensive accounts until things slow down a bit, since every second spent writing inside is a second that we could and should be documenting from the front lines.

With that in mind, here are 99 Twitter feeds of writers, livestreamers, activists, and photographers who together account for a vivid and detailed look at the non-stop state-sponsored mayhem in Chicago (along with some pics from yesterday to spice things up). If I left you out and you're knee-deep in the scrum, please add your handle in the comment section. And if you're a conservative troll who's sitting behind your laptop and talking trash while the rest of us pound the concrete, go fuck yourself. To everyone else – good luck out there. I'm @FARA1. See you all downtown.
