Si eres como yo y los restantes 175 millones de usuarios en Twitter, sabes que ésta red social ha revolucionado nuestros nexos con lo que más nos importa: amigos, comunidad, celebridades, expertos y noticias.  Por el contrario, si aún no tienes cuenta en Twitter, considera abrir una cuenta hoy mismo.

A través de la magia de un simple “tweet” (mensaje de 140 caracteres), podemos crear y compartir información importante de forma concisa e infinita,  además de leer fácilmente los “tweets” publicados por los usuarios que decidimos seguir.

Como emprendedor, “estar al tanto” de las tendencias de tu industria y de pequeños negocios nunca ha sido tan fácil. Con la ayuda de Twitter, puedes estar conectado instantáneamente con grandes emprendedores, expertos de industria, o con entidades locales que afectan a tu negocio. Compartiré contigo las 10 mejores cuentas de Twitter a seguir, divididas en 3 categorías: expertos de industria, grandes emprendedores, y recursos locales para pequeños negocios.   Con esto, espero darte un pequeño impulso para que comiences a compilar tu lista de cuentas de Twitter relacionadas con pequeños negocios para que las sigas y aprendas con ella. ¡No olvides unirte a la conversación y nos vemos en Twitter!
