Twitter was my best companion during my UPSC preparation days. My day started with surfing the daily news headlines through the accounts I followed. The new ideas brought in innovation to my answers.
Twitter continues to be my knowledge hub. As a writer, it gives me the opportunity to follow popular writing accounts. As a result, I have been adopting good writing practices to become a better writer every day.
In a similar way, twitter is the ideal knowledge platform for millions of entrepreneurs. In other words, Twitter is the cheapest medium to share ideas for small businesses like startups. Successful business magnates share ideas via videos, articles, links, etc which is free to share and access.
In this blog, I have compiled a list of twelve must follow twitter accounts for every startup. Get ready for some amazing information sharing experience.
