Whom should I follow on Quora if I am interested in international relations, diplomacy and foreign policy?

IR links

If it's for feed-improvement, I think following topics specifically related to geopolitical events would be helpful, like:

When things go down, even people who normally don't write about international relations can sometimes contribute gems like Chak Azul's answer to What are the Hong Kong students protesting about?

Because of the unscrupulous practices of some of the instigators of some of these crises, I would highly recommend

They do write about other topics like everyone else.  But there's a lot of aggressive and damaging disinformation being put out there; and the international propaganda budget (for Russia, at least) is expected to grow in 2015, so they're good knowledgeable people to follow whose assessments tend to be more trustworthy than others'.

Also,

  • Gabriel Chan are quite knowledgeable about China.
  • Balaji Viswanathan for India and other places.  (Everybody on Earth already follows him, but he's worth a mention.)
  • Ian McCullough seems to know a lot about ISIL and is a great resource for the United States (because the US is a part of the international community, too :o).

For the best of both worlds, some good blogs to follow are:

Those are all the folks I can think of for now (in addition to those mentioned in Mark Binfield's answer).
