Manhire is active on Twitter, and was included in Bryce Edwards and Geoffrey Miller's list of the top 100 tweeters to follow in the 2014 election. On reviewing the list, social media blogger Matthew Beveridge concluded that Manhire's place was deserved: "Toby always has a quick comment for whatever is happening. Engages in a lot of discussions, and doesn’t retweet too much. Overall deserving of his place on the list."
