PR Pros you Should Follow on Twitter

When I first started at Meltwater last summer, my PR knowledge was fairly limited to what I’d learned being an in-house liason between an agency and the various startups I had worked at previously. Since that time, I’ve worked hard to immerse myself in the industry so that I could better understand my target community – and a large part of that was by surrounding myself (digitally speaking) with the real experts in PR. The following people are the ones I think have been instrumental in growing my PR knowledge, and I’d like to pay it forward by sharing their knowledge with all of you, too. If you’re not already following these PR pros on Twitter, now’s your chance. Please also retweet some of their fantastic content, while you’re at it!
