  1. Hi Welles
    Nice list. Couple of guys I haven’t come across in my travels, but follow most of them reasonably closely.
    The biggest issue that I have with twitter I have to say is twitter spam (‘twam’). Don’t tend to spend a lot of time on twitter as a result. Tend to use more alerts to keep up to date with industry news.

  2. It would be interesting to see how each expert’s twitter follower count changes after this post. Or track via GA how exactly how many follows this page generated and create a leaderboard? 🙂

  3. Hi Welles
    What a great list thanks for sharing I will be heading over to check them out to add to my Twitter list!
    Hope you have a great weekend
