#FollowFriday – 3 people to follow in marketing, 3D tech, and privacy

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 marketing and leadership, 3D technology, or privacy and security, 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).


As a digital marketing coach for Burst Technology Marketing, Michelle Pellettier has been telling stories and crafting messages for brands for more than 15 years.

He tweets on the intersection of emerging tech and digital marketing, as well as filmmaking and the creative industry.

As the vice-president and chief privacy officer at McAfee Inc., Michelle Dennedy has been making some waves in the privacy and security world lately – in January, she released a new book called “The Privacy Engineer’s Manifesto: Getting from Policy to Code to QA to Value.” The book centres on how innovations in IT, as well as the consumerization of our digital lives, have transformed the privacy landscape.

As you might guess, Dennedy tweets on data privacy – but she doesn’t limit herself to just tweeting tips and advice. She’s not afraid to voice her opinion, as she’s tweeted about Edward Snowden’s Nobel Peace Prize nomination, and she tells it as it is when she doles out the obvious on keeping your data safe:
