I operate a company called Golf Social Media Services. To help me stay on top of what’s happening in the social-media world, there are hundreds of great people I could follow on Twitter. But I don’t have time to follow hundreds. So, here are nine of the individuals who are on my “social media” list at Twitter and whose tweets apply to any industry.
Social Media Examiner, @smexaminer — This is the Twitter presence for SocialMediaExaminer.com, arguably the single-best source for social-media info for solopreneurs and small businesses.
Debra Ellis, @wilsonellis — Debra is a prolific writer and an expert at how social media fits into a larger marketing strategy.
Francisco Rosales, @socialmouths — Francisco works with clients on a daily basis, and at Twitter he provides practical, valuable tips and advice on how to be better at social media.
Social Media Today, @socialmedia2day — Social Media Today claims to publish the best bloggers on social media and Web 2.0. I’m not going to challenge that claim.
Brian Solis, @briansolis — A thought leader on the subject of new media
Marketing Douchebag, @mktgdouchebag — Written by an anonymous marketer, Marketing Douchebag is the conscience of the marketing world.
Lewis Howes, @sportsnetworker — Lewis is a superb networker and one of the leading experts on how to use LinkedIn.
Emily Binder, @emilybinder — It’s difficult to put a label on Emily. She says she’s a “psychologist posing as a marketer.” I think she’s a sociologist, too.
Lori Taylor, @loritaylor — Lori provides a steady stream of social-media-related news and information.
