Being an expatriate can be a challenging experience and it is always nice to see the trials and tribulations which others in the same situation are going through.
Expats have a long tradition of swapping stories, tips and advice with each other and what better place to do it on the social networking site Twitter?
With this in mind, the Telegraph has taken a look at which are the best expats tweeting in the world at the moment, with the idea that others living abroad may wish to give them a follow.
Among those recommended is author Jenny Colgan, who goes by the Twitter handle @jennycolgan and lives in France along with her husband and three children.
Several of the expats worth following give useful insights into family life abroad, as this comes with its own issues.
Many debates about the expat way of life start at the Twitter account of Russell Ward or @RussellVJWard as he is known on the site.
He is based in Australia and offers plenty of country specific information, as well as general comments on being an expat.
The mystery shrouded Twitter account of Mrs Dubai or @mrsdubai gives the writer the incognito status needed to talk candidly about the Emirate in which she lives.
This is a must-read for anyone thinking of moving to Dubai as it gives a realistic view on what to expect and how to prepare.
She said: "I write about the frustrations of parenting young children when you're used to being a career woman, and it's a big comfort to me to know that there are people all over the world going through the same issues as I am."
Finally Fiona Pitt-Kethley, known by her @pittkethley handle can be relied upon to provide witty and insightful opinions on expat life in Cartagena, Spain, where she lives with her husband and has written no fewer than 21 books.
