Twitter trio out to topple champion Amy off perch

Niall Horan

The battle for Twitter supremacy in Ireland is hotting up, with tweeters Rosanna Davison, Niall Horan and Hozier lining up to steal Amy Huberman's crown.

Ireland is growing as a nation of tweeters, and the RaboTweeties are the main awards to recognise the best people and organisations using Twitter to connect with their followers.

The first round of shortlisted nominees for the 2014 awards ceremony has been announced, and it appears former Miss World Rosanna or One Direction's Horan (below) could pip last year's winner Huberman to the title of Ireland's favourite Twitter celeb.

Voting has begun, but Twitter fans can still get involved by choosing Ireland's best-loved users for 2014 in many categories including television, best celebrity, sport, news and media and best charity.

Another newcomer to the list is current Irish chart sensation Hozier, whose army of loyal Twitter followers are determined to knock Kodaline off their perch and proclaim him as the country's favourite musician on Twitter.

Everyone can vote for their favourite people on Twitter by using the #RaboTweeties hashtag or by visiting www.RaboTweeties.com.

The winners will be announced at an awards show in The Sugar Club on November 26.
