Twitter has certainly evolved into my most loved social media platform. I love it because it’s ubiquitous, relevant, and it doesn’t have to be time consuming. I can easily sample all 5 courses of the content marketing meal (including binging, my personal favourite) regardless of whether I have 2 minutes to spare before a meeting, or an hour to enjoy before heading to the office.
This flexibility is great, but what makes it the most valuable to me is the content tweeted and retweeted by the people I follow. So today I thought I would share my top 5 most impactful tweeters. So without further ado, and in alphabetical order:
Associate Professor, Media @ Queen’s University. Tracking social/mobile eMarketing & edTech trends
Sidneyeve has social media figured out, and routinely tweets engaging articles on a wide range of topics including two of my passions, technology and education.
Founder and CEO, O’Reilly Media. Watching the alpha geeks, sharing their stories, helping the future unfold.
Tim is probably the most well connected person I follow. He posts polarizing opinions, retweets great articles, and does so in a way that is helpful and not overwhelming.
A #writer, #photographer, and #traveler with a #tech #management job in #MedEd @uoftmedicine.
A colleague in the field of technology in medical education, Wes uses Twitter to promote positive, inspiring, and constructive stories.
Co-founder of Fog Creek Software and Stack Overflow
I can compare Joel to Obi-Wan Kenobi (in a wise not old sense). Joel has been in the technology and software industry a long time, and his pieces are regularly eye-opening.
Meet Julie Zhuo @joulee
Product design director @ Facebook. Lover of food, games, and words.
I am a relatively new Julie follower, but her piece on A Manager’s Manifesto turned me into an immediate fan.
Awe Snap, A Bonus Track
Don’t live to geek; geek to live.
I have to mention Lifehacker because I get so much value out of the topics these guys post, everything from how to save space in your cupboard drawers, to how to hack your own brain. A+ folks.
