I love to suggest influencers who are great on Twitter. Below you will find a list of all of my favorite Twitter people along with their blogs.
I have chosen them because they know their marketing stuff, they use Twitter effectively, and they can be modelled to help you succeed with social media. If you want to learn how to be great at marketing, you have to find great marketers – and these are who I recommend.
About Get Elastic
They cover everything, multichannel marketing, mobile, e-commerce, it’s great, it’s a huge blog, but their Twitter feed is excellent.
I recommend you go read it, keep in touch with them, you never know, you may learn something, but they certainly won’t be cold calling you.
About Austin Kleon
Austin is an author, a writer, and an artist. The guy is a genius. His drawings are fantastic; it’s in a sketch notes type of way. Just go see what he does, honestly it’s remarkable. I think it’s wonderful.
About Danielle Laporte
I think she would say that she is an introvert but in her bio, she says she seems like an extrovert. But she has programs. She is an inspiration to women.
But don’t give up men, people like Danielle are just plain brilliant. Now she has a couple of signature things, one is called the fire starter sessions.

The thing I like about her are her images; she’s like Regina at byregina.com in that her images are fantastic and it stands out.
It attracts me and I don’t have an eye for images, I’m not camera buff or anything, but it makes her stand out. She teaches how to build courses, she teaches how to blog and how to do build a list.
About Sonia Simone
Now Sonia, she had her own businesses for years but these days, she is better known as the Chief Content Officer and co-founder of Rainmaker Digital.
Rainmaker Digital is the new name for Copyblogger Media, for those of you more familiar with Copyblogger.
And if I remember rightly, I am pretty sure that Sonia wrote the Teaching Sells Course, which has been synonymous with Copyblogger for quite a while and a very very popular course.
About Jason Calacanis

About Regina Anaejionu
Now the reason I am excited is because this young lady is my favorite blogger and she’s just brilliant.
I’ve never met her. She probably doesn’t know me from Adam. Her name is Regina Anaejionu.
You can find her on Twitter as @byReginaTV and I think on most of her social media things have the TV on the end. Her website is amazing, it’s byregina.com, as simple as that.
About Sarah Evans
She is absolutely fantastic. So her twitter handle is @prsarahevans and if you go along there, she has got like a hundred and six thousand followers last time I looked but she has so many people sending direct tweets at her.
Obviously expect a PR person to be good. But this is how to be social. If you want to know how to chat to people on social media, go and watch what Sarah Evans does. It’s very impressive.
About Melyssa Griffin
Melyssa is lovely. She has a wonderful blog, a very honest, if you look at her latest blog in October, she explains how she got on with her goals that she’d set publicly for September and the goals she set for October.

Now, Derek is very loud and in your face and super confident, but he is also so darn smart.
I’ve seen him speak. He is brilliant. I have heard some of the bigger business gurus reference Derek and talk about how awesome he is.
About Hugh McLeod
His twitter handle is @GapingVoid, all one word, and I think they have quite a few websites. They provide business transformation through art.
If you go to the website, their customers are huge, pretty much any big company you can think of, and the Twitter feed is just full of their images, but they have great interaction. They’re funny.

Chris is a fantastic marketer. He’s been in the marketing industry forever. I actually thought he was English. But apparently he’s born in Canada I think. But he’s been around, he’s written books, he works extensively now with CopyBlogger.
His knowledge is extreme in all things marketing. Follow Chris on Twitter. Follow him on social media. Read his blogs. See what can help you with. He is worth the time.
About Seth Godin
Now the reason this is unique is because Seth does not use twitter. His staff tweets snippets from his daily blog posts.
He also is unique and his blog posts are really, really short. Everyone else’s have to be long. He has millions of daily readers. And the reason is because he is a true thought leader.

Now, this guy is brilliant — Jon Morrow. He’s not just brilliant because he spells his name like I do!
His twitter handle is @jonmorrow, and his website is boostblogtraffic.com. He’s writing some of the best writing ever, and he teaches how to write like that. Look at his headlines.
His headlines are irresistible.
About Darren Rowse
Darren Rowse is Australian. He’s just all over blogging, over social media and he knows exactly what he’s doing. He has strategies and actual fact he’s very famous in my circles for Problogger.
But his bigger business is Digital Photography School and photography has always been his main love. But as he knew he learned how to blog, he thought he’d teach other photographers how to do it and how to become a Problogger and it went from there.
About Chris Brogan
Chris is a thought leader and he won’t say he is. He just says he reads a lot. He consumes books but he knows his stuff.
He’s prolific, a blogger, speaker, author, fantastic social media expert. Last time I looked, over 300,000 followers but the guy is good.

About Rebekah Radice
Social media strategy is Rebekah’s bag so look at her stuff but look at the way she writes her posts.
Her posts are some of those that for people who are interested in her subject like me, you cannot help but read the whole thing even when it comes in on the email. She emails me and says there’s a new post, I have to go click, I think, I’ve got work to do, but I find that I am going to look and then she makes me do other things.
About Ana Hoffman
Ana is one of my favorite bloggers. And the reason for that, she is from Eastern Europe.
She has built a fantastic business. It’s a great blog. It has great examples and information. She tries things, she then does it and then she talks about it, but she writes well, she’s humorous, and her English is immaculate.
About Laura Roeder
This is Laura Roeder. Now Laura is fabulous. She’s great. she is so young and not only is she young, she looks younger. But the thing I like about Laura, is that she learns, she’s very determined and she puts into practice and then she teaches it really well.
She’s got a great YouTube channel. And all her social media, as you can imagine, is excellent.
There are quite a few email service provider lists but Aweber is my favorite and I like their twitter handle. I like following it, like seeing what they do.
They specialize in email marketing. They will put you on to lots of great content and they actually have a lot of good content on their own blog but I enjoy it.
About Anita Campbell
Anita has been publishing that is an online magazine since 2003 I think. It is chock-full of information for small business owners getting groups, refuses things that includes gear guides. It’s, you know, gadgets, things like that.
It’s pretty cool. Now, she is also a very, very strong advocate for female entrepreneurs.
About Sue Anne Dunlevie
I love her tweets and she seems to have a great character. She puts a face up there, and she’s very real. She talks to beginner bloggers about all the things that we like to know about, and it is very, very helpful.
So go and have a look at Sue, follow her, see what she does and see if you can learn from her do it the way she does it.

Ivana makes marketing easy and she shows you how to do it. I like her blog. She has been featured in many magazines and online sites. She is smart. She is clever. She is quirky, and occasionally has colorful language. So, I apologize if you don’t like that.
About Barry Moltz
Barry has been around for a while. He’s started loads of small businesses and sold them and he’s failed a gazillion times in the last 20 years. By the way, people who’ve failed are better to learn from because that’s when you learn what not to do.
He’s been on TV. He’s written books. His thing is teaching people how to unlock their long-forgotten potential.
About Jeff Bullas
Jeff has a lot of followers. He knows how to use social media properly. He has advice on tools, how to make things work better, how to improve everything which is what we promote here and he teaches on how to improve everything without spending any money.

About David Newman
David is naturally a marketing expert. He has some very helpful information to share. You can look at his blog and his website, he’s got a lot.
About Steve Strauss
If you run a small business like me, Steve has information on tax, outsourcing, resources, insurance, everything. It is a fabulous wealth of information. It has been around for a longtime.
He is a very highly respected journalist. He has a great twitter stream with a ton of useful information. Follow Steve, see what he does, learn something new, and then do it on yours. That’s how it works.
About Melinda Emerson
Melinda wrote a book called, Become Your Own Boss in 12 months. It is a very popular book.
She has a website that gives all the information you need as a small business entrepreneur. She’s a fabulous lady who has been on television in America.
She knows what she’s talking about. It is well worth watching how she tweets, what she tweets, and how she interacts with others.
Seamless.com is based in the USA and the UK and they provide, food for business meetings, staff, clients or whenever you need to bring food in.
They have a website and they work with local restaurants so they can give you lots of choices for food options. They do all the work for you!
The reason I want you to look at their Twitter stream is because they have a way of tempting you. They use food, showing delicious pictures and recipes, and the food looks great. It makes you feel hungry.
They have around 145,000 followers the last time I looked and they follow back around 30,000 which is good. They get re-tweeted a lot and a ton of their followers share their content. The visual pictures are very tempting!
About She’s the First
The reason I’m recommending following She’s the First on Twitter is I want you to see what they do, and it is not for what they do but I like the way they promote.
Now, they are not all-out promotion but they do this — they tend to promote the people that support them. They will show where somebody from the organization is being given an award or someone who has promoted or given them some recent support is being featured somewhere else.
Now why this is a great thing to copy or do for your own business is because those people are then going to re-tweet that they were mentioned in the tweet. So what they are doing is they are leveraging on leveraging the other people’s following.
About Michael Sinkin
If I lived in New York, I would want Michael Sinkin to be my dentist. He is really funny. He is a dentist that will make you laugh, and if you have ever been to the dentist, you want to make sure that he has a sense of humor — and Michael does.
Look at his twitter feed and see how he interacts with his clients and how he responds to them. He has a few thousand followers, and I am sure that many of those are his clients. I can almost bet that his business is pretty successful and he is comfortable in his day to day living.
About RS Hotel
Roger Smith Hotel is a very good user of Twitter and Vine and I don’t see many of those outside of the young folks age groups. They talk to visitors and discuss aspects of their surrounding area. They’ve got a lot of re-tweets, lots of favorites and a lot of interaction.
When I look at their feed it makes me feel that they’re real. Hotels are so corporate so boring. This feels like it’s an individual hotel with real people.
About Hay Merchant
The reason I like Hay Merchant is not because they’re the world’s greatest as they don’t seem to follow back so many of their customers, so they tend to be talking out, not listening in, which is not always a good thing.
But they put out good information and they use Twitter well. They’re a bar, so they talk about when they’ve got a special new beer on or they’ve got a special new food menu item and they send it out to their followers.
About So Worth Loving
So Worth Loving deals in trendy clothing. They have a great story. I like their Twitter stream because they get good feedback. They get good re-tweets. And, it’s very social media heavy.
They do a lot on Instagram, as you can imagine, being a clothing company and being trendy. It’s going to naturally have a lot of imagery. They have good use of images.
About K2K Stars
This one is for K2KStars. They run performing arts studios in UK.
I think it’s southeast London based and they do dance and they performing arts, things like that for kids. But, one of the reasons their Twitter profile does so well is they are so engaged.
As you can imagine, it’s not just the photos and the images and the videos. It’s because they’re real. They’re genuine. Kids are finding themselves. They’re improving their lives and it shows.
About Mike Stelzner
Social Media Examiner covers all the aspects of social media, and what Mike does, is to employ the best writers and the top minds, or top thought leaders, people from Neil Patel, Mari Smith, Kim Garst, and anyone else you can think of to produce fabulous articles and great graphics.
About Dave Kerpen
Dave wrote the book Likeable Social Media and he has a business called Likeable Media built on it. So you’re getting it from the horse’s mouth.
He’s actually built his company doing this and he advises large companies on how to do it but again this is not just to make friends with Dave.
About David G Cant
David is a health and safety expert and he surprises us because he shows us how it can be done. He has what I would describe as a pretty boring subject. I mean I can’t think of the last dinner party I went to where someone discussed health and safety matters in a nice way. But David makes it active.
He’s got a lot of followers. He’s very active on social media and he’s very active on many social media. So I suggest that you go and look at his streams, look at what he’s doing, monitor it and be trained by him in a sort of a strange way but do what David does.
About Chalene Johnson
She started as a fitness coach. She’s has a great story. She started as a fitness coach and made lots and lots of famous videos but that business has been sold to BeachBody for a successful amount and she now advises on improving lives in business and organizing and getting things done.
But she has a great way of presenting herself. She has a huge followings on social media and it’s not a fluke. She works on it, she knows what she’s doing so look at her feeds in Twitter, and try and get to know her.
About Marcus Sheridan
Marcus’s story is fantastic. He’s a genuine guy and Marcus unknowingly changed the entire way I do my business marketing in my main business. Marcus uses the power of story and personal experience to touch businesses, lives, and people around the globe.
