There are a busload of really smart people tweeting. The trick is finding them amongst the noise and clutter. Here we’ve compiled our favorite Tweeters to give you a jump-start.
Think Eloqua overlooked one that every B2B marketer should be following? Please leave us a comment with your suggestion. Thanks!
http://twitter.com/remarkmarketing Think of Brian Hansford as a social media filter: His tweets highlight content worthy of your attention. Curation can be value of the highest order.
http://twitter.com/bostonmarketer – Rachel Levy enthusiastically interacts with her fellow Tweeters, and shares links and info on all things related to marketing and social media.
http://twitter.com/augieray – If the language of social media is “snark,” Augie Ray doesn’t speak social. But don’t confuse his down-to-earth manner with a lack of gusto. He can mix it up with the best of ‘em, as evidenced by his defense of the @forrester corporate blog policy (editor’s note: he gets bonus points for being right).
http://twitter.com/garyvee – Gary Vaynerchuk, a self-made phenomenon who was named “Innovator of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast magazine in 2009, used all forms of social media to catapult himself to success. Follow and learn.
http://twitter.com/jblock – Jonathan Block, Vice President at SiriusDecisions, points followers to lots of great B2B sales and marketing best-practice research and data. He’s no “Teflon™ don,” just a good ol’ guy.
http://twitter.com/MackCollier – When it comes to social media, Mack Collier knows his stuff and walks the walk, finding time to share his thoughts and engage with his followers.

http://twitter.com/michellegreer – Michelle Greer, Senior Manager of Corporate Communications at Rackspace and Web marketing strategist, mixes it up with tweets about the personal and professional (and isn’t afraid to let you know where she stands!).
http://twitter.com/stevegarfield – Steve Garfield, author of Get Seen: Online Video Secrets to Building Your Business, shares useful tips and (often humorous) insights about using online video and digital devices.
http://twitter.com/dmscott – In spite of traveling the world to speak, this marketing strategist and bestselling author of The New Rules of Marketing & PR finds time to share useful (and witty) tweets. He’s also one of our advisors.

http://twitter.com/pgillin – In previous lives, Paul Gillin was founding editor-in-chief of TechTarget, and editor-in-chief and executive editor of Computerworld. Now this master of personal reinvention consults, writes and speaks about how marketers can effectively use social media and online channels.
http://twitter.com/crmstrategies – One of the best guys in B2B marketing (or any industry, for that matter), Brian Vellmure invites you to learn about CRM and connecting with your customers. He also knows a thing or two about beer, which is points in my book.
http://twitter.com/kitson – Could Josh Weinberger be the funniest man in publishing? Quite possibly. But if nothing else, he’s authentic and you can surely learn a thing or two from the Managing Editor at CRM magazine.
