Are you just getting your feet wet with Twitter? Or, were you an early adopter who started tweeting and using Twitter as a marketing tool well before anyone even knew what it was? No matter what stage of Twitterhood you’re in, I have a question for you …
Who do you follow?
Simple question, right? Well, there are tons of people from all walks of life who use Twitter. Sure, you can follow peeps in your niche or even folks you like. But, you should also mix things up and look for new people, people who are interesting, who you can learn from, or who you might forge business partnerships with.
Whether you’re just getting started or have been using Twitter for a while, stick around because I’ve put together a list (in no particular order) of some must-follow marketing peeps you should meet.
10 Marketing Experts to Follow on Twitter
This list — with some featured tweets — is purposefully short because I want to make sure you have enough time to check them all out. So, no excuses.
