If you are a business owner you definitely need to be on Twitter. Every social media platform has its benefits, but Twitter is particularly effective not only to promote your business (in a social media friendly way of course), but also to connect and engage with influencers in your specific field, from all over the world. Knowing who to follow and how to network on Twitter can be a slow process to begin with, particularly if you are a novice at it. Twitter is all about consistency of posting and keeping it short and to the point (hence the 140 characters allowance). Sure you can follow the “big guys”, the innovators, the world’s most well known entrepreneurs and CEO’s, but the chances of getting a reply or a retweet from them are very slim; not because they don’t want to, but because the whole world is trying to reach out to them. We’ve put together a list of 10 very useful Twitter accounts you should definitely start following and connect with them.
