14 eCommerce Influencers You Should Be Following on Twitter

Table Of Contents

Twitter’s strength as a social platform is its aggregation of bite-sized chunks of information that users can digest at will rather than needing to wade their way through multiple sites and articles to find the information that matters.

For Twitter to work for you, it’s important to follow a variety of people that offer up a range of relevant and timely Tweets. When finding Twitter influencers, diversity is key.

Twitter influencers aren’t measured by the number of followers they have, but the value of the content they share. Relevant, important content brings followers, not other way around.

We’ve handpicked an assortment of eCommerce leaders, from CEO’s and founders to analysts and reports, so you can expose your stream to a range of content.

For easy access to all of our top eCommerce influencers, check out our curated list on Twitter.
