Who do you follow on Twitter? If you're looking for new insights and inspiration, check out these philanthropy experts worth following.
I've been actively using Twitter for seven years, and I'm still amazed at the people I can connect with on this social media platform. I've chatted with global entrepreneurs, actors, athletes, politicians and other well-known figures I never imagined meeting or connecting with, even online.
From a business and social impact perspective, I've met a number of truly influential people who, surprisingly, have fewer than 3,000 followers, others have many more. To me, these leaders are "movers and shakers" who have given me invaluable information and guidance that's helped me expand my network - and create new business opportunities.
My gift to you is a list of 25 philanthropy experts you should follow on Twitter right away (in no particular order).
