For today’s edition of our #FollowFriday post, we’ve rounded up a list of three people whose tweets are retweet-worthy. Whether they tweet on startups, digital marketing techniques, or advocate for a free Internet, these three individuals are worth a click on the “follow” button.
(And in case you’re not on Twitter, #FollowFriday, or #FF, is a Friday standby where Twitter users recommend a list of accounts to others. For example, you might tweet, “#FF @itworldca @itbusinessca @compdealernews” to encourage your followers to follow these accounts, especially if you see value in their tweets).
