One of my favorite things about Twitter is the fact that I can follow what the world is talking about in a few clicks. Whereas Facebook is geared towards friendships, Twitter is the perfect aggregation of ideas and worldwide discussion in 140 characters or less. As a writer who is always looking for the next big thing, Twitter is an invaluable resource for inspiration.
In my time blogging about event management software and the industry as a whole, I have come across many influencers with tons of useful ideas to share. Rather than keep these resources to myself I have compiled a list of 25 Twitter handles I frequent the most.
