When I meander back to how I used Twitter back in the day, I’m embarrased. How did I not really see the amazing business potential of Twitter? It’s way too sad to spend too much time on, but now that I do understand its value I can connect with some pretty stellar people. These are my top content marketers on Twitter who share tips, industry news, and how-to’s for marketing your content.
And I should note – there’s no rhyme or reason to this list. I picked 50 of the best #contentmarketing tweeters I was following and took a few recommendations as well. These are people that regardless of their follower count are doing great things in the world of content marketing!

And that’s my list! Remember, this list is not based on followers, reach, etc. If you want a list that is data driven check out Michael Brenner’s blog post from December 2014 – The Top 200 Content Marketing Brands and Influencers. That’s a great list and he’s organized it by PageRank.
Send me a tweet over at @StephNissen_ to let me know your thoughts on the list! And I made it easy for you to check out all these top influencers in action on my Twitter List “Top 50 Content Marketers.”
Who would you add to the list above?
Thanks so much for including me on this list Stephen. Honored!
Glad to include you, Mandy!
