#FollowFriday – startups, digital marketing, and Internet 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 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).


As the CEO and founder of Incubes, a Toronto startup accelerator, Zlotnick is very active in the startup and venture capital space. He tweets about startup culture, growth, and new technologies, as well as about the companies who have graduated from his program. And for a more eclectic mix of tweets, follow him for tidbits on beer and sports (after all, the Olympics are on right now).

Don’t forget to check out this week’s story on Incubes and its two new accelerator programs.


Dave Fleet is the senior vice-president of Edelman’s digital team, overseeing the public relations firm’s social media and communications strategies. While he regularly gives career advice to PR and communications professionals on his blog, www.davefleet.com, Fleet also writes about how social media affects current events – for example, Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad’s use of Instagram to make his regime look more pleasant to the rest of the world. Follow Fleet on Twitter for his insights on what it means to be in today’s digital marketing space.

Head on over here to read about IT Business.ca editor Brian Jackson’s experience on a social media panel with Fleet, as well as with other marketing executives.
