12 Legends To Follow On Twitter
by Tom Hasker, Associate Partner, Lighthouse International
I went through my Twitter account the other day and thought; 'Why am I following all these people?' It made me think about the choices I have made over the past few years about who I choose to associate with and why. I asked myself ‘Why am I still following this person?’ and ‘What criteria should I use to decide who to follow and who not to?’
After all, I'm looking to learn from legends so I need to choose who I learn from wisely...
I decided to choose who I follow based on the following:
- Do I find this person or company inspiring?
- Do I agree with what they stand for?
- Are they in line with my own goals and aspirations?
- Would I be comfortable recommending this person to someone else to follow?
So speaking to the guys in the Lighthouse International team, I’ve discovered a few of our favourite legends to follow which we wanted to share with you below...
