125 Best People to Follow on Twitter for Social Media Geeks

Social Media Tips Twitter

125_Best_People_to_Follow_on_Twitter_for_Social_Media_Geeks-lsbest people to follow on TwitterI pretty much owe my whole career to Twitter.

I’ve met & learned from some of the best people in my industry there.

In fact, it's safe to say that I wouldn't be where I am today without it.

And because I work in social media marketing, I'm also interacting daily with marketers, writers, social media influencers & business people from around the globe.

People like:

  • Peg Fitzpatrick
  • Ann Handley
  • Lee Odden
  • Amber Osborne
  • Neil Patel

To show them all how much I appreciate them, I listed 125 of my favorite people to follow on Twitter.

These are the people who taught me how to market on Twitter.

And I hope you enjoy following them as much as I enjoyed making this list!
