10 Handles You Need To Be Following On Twitter

By Jameson Brown | Small Business

Twitter is the dominant news connection that gives us instantaneous information that we can engage with and share with our own communities. The more we interact, the more our communities grow (if done correctly and respectfully). But where’s a good starting point? Below is a concise list of ten Twitter handles that provide great value on a regular basis – handles range across the board in terms of content.

1. Anthony De Rosa (@AntDeRosa)

Anthony is the Editor-in-Chief at Circa and tends to produce well covered stories. His editorial vision for Circa has proven worthy and has made it a go-to source for not only news, but mobile media.

2. The Dissolve (@TheDissolve)

The Dissolve (fueled by Pitchfork) blends film criticism with new media in a very traditional way. Their reviews are lengthy, but chock-full of good insights and thematic takeaways. And if you click through to their website, be sure to check out their comments section on each review – acting as a high-gravity sounding board, it’s an application that packs a punch.

3. Allison Lichter (@AllisonLichter)

Allison is the Social Media Editor for The Wall Street Journal and does a good job of publishing consistently. Oh, and she incorporates graphics regularly to spice up her tweets. Go Allison.

4. Claudia Eller (@Variety_Claudia)

Claudia, the Editor-in-Chief of Film at Variety, does well with giving followers inside/behind-the-scenes content. Check out her Oscars 2014 coverage on her handle.

5. Justin Crate (@WSBTVCameraMan)

A local influencer (at least for me anyway), Crate mixes his content with stories he’s covering (a lot of the time these tweets are in real time), while also giving us behind-the-scenes of what it’s like to be a video producer for a news channel. He also has a funny (but still professional) Vine account.

6. Social@Ogilvy (SocialOgilvy)

The Ogilvy social agency does a phenomenal job with talking back and forth with each and every follower (talking with people, who would have thought?). They also produce good industry content for new media professionals.

7. Christopher Orr (@OrrChris)

I originally only valued Christopher’s handle for his film content, but got hooked on the other stories he covered across the board. He has a biting sense of sarcasm attached to every tweet/article he writes. Be ready.

8. The Daily Dot (@DailyDot)

One of the best new media editorial newsrooms around, The Daily Dot produces stories and the delivery of those stories better than any media company out there.

9. Ashley Codianni (@AshleyCodianni)

Ashley is a skilled new media journo who is quite a resource to have on any Twitter list. Along with her own stories she covers, she RT’s and shares a diverse range of content that makes her a definite go-to for instant media that’s valuable.

10. Joel Pavelski (@JoelCifer)
