Venture Capital: 40 People You Should Be Following On Twitter

Here Are 40 People You Should Be Following On Twitter by Mikey Tom, PitchBook

Ten years ago today, Twitter-that online micro-blogging service people can use to tell you what they’re eating for breakfast-publicly launched. In all seriousness, the service has come a long way since then. The Arab Spring. Black Lives Matter. News of the operation that killed Osama Bin Laden. All were furthered by what initially seemed liked a trivial platform where people could pour out their half-baked thoughts.

The company itself has been through a lot in this 10-year span, too. It raised about $1 billion in venture capital, changed management countless times and raised $1.82 billion via a public offering in 2013.

With a nod to the 10th anniversary of Twitter’s public launch, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite accounts (besides ours, of course). We’ve separated them into two lists: One featuring venture capitalists, and the other a grab bag of journalists/operators/analysts/industry personalities. Give them a follow if you’re looking to add more insightful analysis, breaking news and humor to your Twitter feed.
