Every Follow Friday, we round up a list of people with active Twitter accounts, ones that we feel are worth a click on the ‘follow’ button.

This week, we’re focusing on people from a variety of different backgrounds – mobile payments, digital marketing, and gadget reviews.

Brian Deck, CEO and co-founder of SmoothPay
As the CEO of SmoothPay, a Toronto-based startup helping businesses accept mobile payments via its app and a QR code, Deck regularly tweets about entrepreneurship, as well as the news and headlines of what’s happening in tech and, more locally, in Toronto. Click the link in the tweet above to read a story on SmoothPay by Brian Jackson, editor of ITBusiness.ca.


Oli Gardner, co-founder and creative director at Unbounce
If there’s one thing that Gardner doesn’t like, it’s poorly-constructed landing pages. He’s vented about that anathema in a recent blog post on Unbounce’s site, describing some of the worst ways marketers can set up those pages. As for tweets, Gardner doesn’t soft-pedal his opinions – he tweets about tactics in social media marketing and content marketing, as well as some thoughts on his own interests, like UFC matches.

As a contributor to ITBusiness.ca, Alex Davies has written up some pretty popular reviews on some of the new ultrabooks out there, with his piece on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 racking up its fair share of hits. On Twitter, Davies tweets about new phones, smartwatches, and sometimes the World Cup.
