#FF: Who to follow on Twitter

Twitter can either be a handy business and networking tool or a waste of professional productivity, depending on your standpoint. 

One thing is certain about the social media website however and that is it's here to stay and play a perhaps increasing part in whatever industry you're in.

Hi Tim, 

I like TweetDeck, Hootsuite and Echofon (all are free). 

Hope this helps.

Lists    2 thanks

I curate some relevant lists on twitter, you can either follow them en masse or pick those on the list you want to follow individually. The first two lists each contain 400-500 names.

Accountants and tax bods - Tweeting UK accountants and tax advisers. (Tweeting firms are listed separately)

Accountancy firms - UK - UK accounting, tax and bookkeeping firms that tweet in the firm's name vs a real person's name

Accounting and tax bodies - UK only

Top UK tax views - Respected commentators who regularly post views re UK tax issues and policy

  If you think you should be added to one or other of the lists please TWEET me and I'll add you the next time I update them.   Despite my own enthusiastic use of twitter I do sympathise with @Carnmores view to a degree as those who have read my articles on the topic will understand. However much of the value and benefit accountants CAN get from twitter will depend upon who you choose to follow and how you choose to use it yourself.  More here>>>  Mark
