We've all witnessed the growth of Twitter over the years and seen what it is doing for customer service, building brands, and connecting with people, but I'm not sure how often we advocate for those we follow. Below are five people who I follow on Twittter because I enjoy what they post and what they stand for. If you agree, feel free to follow them as well. Happy Friday!
Michelle Welsch @redheadlefthand - I first connected with Michelle after reading a post where Seth Godin mentioned her and was impressed with how quickly she got back to me. I then participated in one of her famous curated dinners, met some amazing people and recently have started participating in her Twitter chats at #cxchat. If you want great advice on building relationships and to see a wealth of resources, be sure to check out her site and her twitter feed!
Bobby Cronin @Bobbycronin- I met Bobby a little while back and have been to many of his concerts and shows. What impresses me most about his twitter presence is just that, his presence. He loves to retweet and favorite good content, will always respond to those who reach out to him, and is a truly genuine person who is always happy to support and promote the work of others. Be sure to check out his site and twitter feed.
Carol Roth @caroljsroth- I saw Carol speak at a business conference a few years ago and was so impressed with what she had to say that I immediately started reading her book, The Entrepreneur Equation. It was very helpful to me in the projects I was working on and I started following her on twitter. Carol not only has great insights on there from her blog, she also finds great articles and content to retweet. Be sure to check out her site and twitter feed.
Peter Shankman @petershankman- I saw Peter on a panel at NYU on entrepreneurship and I really enjoyed hearing about his philosphy of using twitter to make instant connections in real time. If you go to his feed, you will see how engaged he is with his community and how often he looks to help and connect others. He also is involved in more things than I can count. Be sure to check out his site and twitter feed.
Daryl Ray Carliles @DarylRay- What I love about Daryl is that he makes it a point to promote as many other people as possible. He even has a twitter handle for that @wepromoteart. It's this kind of selfless behavior that really ignites the conversation of social media. Be sure to check out his site and twitter feed.
Of course there are so many more people that I follow on Twitter and this is just a brief run down of some great ones. Hope that you get a chance to follow these folks and enjoy your friday!
