If you are like most marketing professionals and myself, you have a job or duty; a responsibility to deliver GREAT CONTENT to your audience. That is the sole reason I curated this list of my Top 35 Social Media Influencers You Want to Follow on Twitter in 2017.
Each of these profiles represent notable and key influencers in the MarketingSphere as well as in the Twittersphere. I personally follow these Influencers on various Social Media platforms. I invite you to check out all the links associated with the Influencers.
