In our opinion, Twitter is still the place to get your best and freshest digital marketing news. If you want to stay up to date with the latest algorithm updates, best-practises and research, Twitter is the place. LinkedIn has been gaining a lot recently in this space with a lot of great accounts starting to post on there, but Twitter is still by far in the lead.
However, Twitter still has a lot of turn-over in who we look to for genius. Many of our favourite accounts have stopped tweeting, but there are also a huge new crop of brilliant accounts coming up to take their place in our hearts (and brains).
Admittedly there are also a lot of great Twitter accounts that we just weren’t aware of before this year for one reason or another (I’m sure it’s the same for you). These reasons combined means that the Twitter feeds we look to in any niche change year after year, and so correspondingly we’ve decided to update our top 50 Digital Marketing accounts list in order to follow this trend.
Only about 30% of accounts listed last year made the cut this year, so this is a 70% new list! These Tweeters all consistently say and retweet excellent things. If you only follow 50 accounts on Twitter this year, follow these ones and that will be enough to keep you on top of your digital marketing game!
