Five People To Follow On Twitter For Good Business Content
Social Media

Mar 03, 2014 << Back

Simon Kemp (@eskimon)

Simon Kemp is We Are Social’s Asia managing partner. Kemp does a great job of curating a stream of research findings on social media, mobile penetration, and Internet-related behaviors happening throughout the world (especially in South East Asia). I like Kemp’s tweets because he’s good at singling out the most important slide from a deck, rather than making followers sift through an entire presentation.

Subrahmanyam KVJ (@SuB8u)

Subrahmanyam (or Subbu for short) is my Wall Street Journal, Economic Times, and Reuters guy. Subbu has a knack for finding the best business information from these media sources, while also adding his own summarized insights gleaned from the article in a tight 140-character tweet. Subbu knows how to screenshot the right paragraph of a post and draw readers in to the full article.

Cynthia Than (@NinjaEconomics)

Cynthia Than shares a unique collection of business and current events content through curated data visualization or direct links. Than doesn’t share what everyone else pushes around when news breaks. She always finds a chart or a link that elevates a new perspective to stand out from the noise, and it’s refreshing. Than, like Subbu, also has a talent for summarizing content succinctly.

Max Roser (@MaxCRoser)

Max Roser publishes the best data visualization I’ve seen. Roser, a researcher at Oxford University, publishes data centered on long-term trends in living standards (but if you know what you’re looking at, the information can be valuable for future business thinking). Roser curates the work of brilliant minds like Vaclav SmilThe Core Project, and even his own carefully constructed charts and graphs. Pay attention to Roser because he’s offering useful information while also teaching followers how to organize data better.

Tiffany Zhong (@tzhongg)

Tiffany Zhong knows how to curate information—she’s on the team over at Product Hunt, a community that organizes the latest in tech creations. Zhong’s tweets are a lovely collection of stumbled upon quotes, advice, and musings on the current business landscape. What I like most about her style is that you don’t have to click out and away from your feed to consume content; Zhong tweets visuals, statements, and thoughts without many links. The content can be digested quickly, and then excuses itself as you continue on your journey scrolling down the feed.
