Top CEOs on Twitter That More People Should Follow (i.e. not @ev)

Written by Antonio Altamirano | Founder and CEO at Tangelo

I was going through the recommendations for people to follow on my @MrTweet account and I saw a few very interesting names and was surprised by the relatively low number of followers they have. As CEOs of successful companies and thought leaders, following them offers quite a bit of insight into their minds from the mundane to the useful and interesting.

I have uncovered a list of CEOs that you should follow on Twitter.

Since apparently a cat (Yes an actual cat) can get half a million followers on Twitter in less than three months, I thought it might be a good idea to follow folks that actually would add value to your feed. Sorry @sockington.

[Do you have other names of CEOs that you think should be on this list?  Please add them in the comments area.]
