Top Internet Marketing Experts to Follow on Twitter & Google+

Hello, I’m Anna I’ve been with Mckremie for a little while now. One of my expanded roles is to head up our company twitter account here: @McKremie. When I first started I had questions like:

-Who are the best people in Internet Marketing both Social Media & SEO to follow?
-Where do I find a good list for both Twitter and Google+?

I have to say there are some out there but not quite what I was looking for. With the help of Stuart I put together a good collection and what I think is a great starting point for finding people to follow. Now don’t get butt-hurt if your name is not on the list. It’s not a definitive list and it’s not in any specific order. I did put together what I felt was a mix of online marketers. If you feel I missed some important names in the industry leave a comment and let me know.
