Top 50 Content Marketing Influencers on Twitter


Looking for top #contentmarketing influencers to follow on twitter?

Here’s some help from Cision.

Thanks to Adrienne Sheares, Social PR Manager for Cision and blogging contributor, for compiling the top 50 content marketers to follow on twitter list. You can find her on Twitter at @SocialMediaDC, @Cision and @PRWeb. In her post Adrienne says,  “If content is king, what does that make content marketing experts? A great, must-follow resource on Twitter! In 2015, content marketing will be more important than ever, so why not learn from some of the best? You could scan millions of tweets and vet the Twittervese, or you could let Cision do the work for you. By leveraging CisionPoint‘s Influencer Search and the keywords Content Marketing and #ContentMarketing, we were able to  identify the content marketing influencers who tweeted on topic in the last month.”

With so many people I admire on this list, I’m honored to included. In 2013, made Cision’s top 50 PR blogs list.

In looking at each influencer’s twitter bio, a few keywords pop out: author, speaker, media, content, marketing, digital, social and business. I like the bios that include links and will be adding one in mine. I’ll also be taking out a few hashtags. 🙂  Which bios stand out to you?
