Who to Follow on Twitter in Tech

Since starting business school, I’ve recommended to a number of classmates interested in startups and tech to start using Twitter. The fact that they are ideal Twitter users but somehow aren’t finding value in it is another blog post.

For the first person to whom I made this recommendation, she opened her Twitter app and on her behalf I followed the most interesting and prolific users that I personally followed.

Of course, that’s unsustainable. Below are the people I’ve found most interesting on Twitter.

Side note: Twitter – a good function for new users would be to follow all of the users someone else follows, rather than do this manually. New users would build their feeds with accounts that have already been curated by power users.
