Back in the olden days, in the pre-social media era, your network was usually confined to people you had done business with or met in person. One of my favorite things about social media – and Twitter in particular – is the ability to connect with fellow PR pros I might never have crossed paths with IRL. You can learn so much by following along with great influencers and thought leaders, all while growing your own sphere of influence and often opening doors to new business relationship and opportunities.
As part of our monthly #NiceToTweetYou series, we’ve rounded up some of our team’s favorite Twitter accounts to add to your stream. Go click “follow” and then let us know who else you think we should be following!
