Hi, my name is Rick Canale and I tweet. I tweet a lot. Days, nights, weekends, you could say I have an addiction. I follow more than 1900 Tweeters and am followed by over 1200. If you are a glutton for information, want your news now or enjoy pop culture, then Twitter is waiting for you. As a matter of fact, you do not even have to tweet to enjoy twitter. I know many voyers on Twitter that have never even tweeted. I love Twitter so much that I even bought their stock. I have compiled a short list of my favorite five on Twitter to get you started. I have also thrown in a solid list of honorable mentions to build your profile and although I am not a huge advocate of following companies on Twitter; I have tossed in a few that seem to get it right. Here is my short five in no specific order.
- @DaveKerpen Dave is considered one of the most influential marketers on LinkedIn. His infectious personality has transformed the social media landscape. Some may remember Dave as the Crunch n' Munch guy. I know Dave as a kind man who loves his family, is a huge baseball fan and pleasure to work with. You can learn a lot from him.
- @chrissyteigen Some may know her as an SI Swimsuit cover girl while others recognize her as John Legend's wife. Teigen is the blueprint for anyone looking to build their personal brand on Twitter. She also tweets lots of great photos of food, engages her fans and makes you laugh a lot.
- @RingPRGirl Boston Public Relations pro, Kimberley Ring is a torch bearer for those who want to help others on Twitter. Sharing anecdotes, promoting charities and reaching out to others make Kim a Twitter all star.
- @ Michael Beschloss is an author, presidential historian and contributor to PBS and NBC. Follow him for a daily history lesson filled with prize winning photos.
