50 great marketers to follow on Twitter. And me.

50 (different) but great marketers to follow on Twitter

50 (different) but great marketers to follow on Twitter

I came across this great study by the folks at Leadtail and DNN Software on how top marketers at mid-size (50-5,000 employees) US companies engage on Twitter. If you’re a marketer that wants to get inside the social media head of US marketers – check out the study here.

(Disclaimer: I have nothing to do with these guys, don’t know them, I’m sure that they are lovely people though…)

The piece on great marketers to follow on Twitter – is the last part of the article. (My twitter handle is @betonliamcasey). Post your Twitter handle in the comments section – for a Twitter follow from me!

Some interesting takeaways on network penetration on the group of marketers studied:

* Google+ is still ranking low. (And marketers are typically early-adopters)

* Purely visual networks are growing FAST (I was surprised by VIne in particular).

* Facebook is on the slide, big time.

What global industry sources are these marketers sharing the most over Twitter?

* Mashable is still smashing it – and does tend to lead the way with the best global online marketing content (in my opinion).

Who are these marketers retweeting the most?

* Europeans don’t really get @ValaAfshar – but I’d highly recommend his book The Pursuit of Social Business Excellence. Great read.

* @jowyang – guru of crowd (not cloud!) based companies. A brilliant mind.

* @jeffbullas -the most relentless most self-publicising marketer on the planet. (That’s a compliment btw). He does a GREAT job of simplifying a lot of marketing numbers and ideas for people.
