My team found over 1,000 twitter accounts focused on #crowdfunding all over the world. We put together a list of the Top 30 most followed accounts to follow.
As we all know, one of the key challenges of social media is the amount of noise and meaningless content. This is precisely why we started a series of Top 30 Twitter Accounts to Follow in several areas of interest to our readership, not necessarily exclusively in financial services.
For the first article of our new series, we will focus on crowdfunding.
Even though the size of a follower base is not the only criteria to consider -it is indeed easy to buy dozens of thousands of fake followers-, it still remains one of the key indicators of a twitter account’s authority.
We invite you to follow our twitter list ‘Top 30 Crowdfunding‘, which includes the accounts listed below.
This is a work in progress. Please feel free to flag any misses.
