Want to build a presence on Twitter? One of the best ways to get more followers is to tweet – and retweet – great stuff. Any one of the Twitter accounts below can give you ample opportunities for world-class retweets.
1. Forbes Magazine- @Forbes 11.9M followers.
Forbes is the big kahuna among small business publishers. It produces dozens of articles a day on almost any topic a small business owner might be interested in. Also consider following @ForbesTreps– 38,400 followers
2. Mark Cuban- @Mcuban 6.44M followers.
I’m not sure the Dallas Mavericks qualify as a small business, but Cuban has many other business projects. He tweets about business management and strategy all the time (in between the basketball shots).
