You could follow each individually, or simply follow this one Twitter list to see tweets from all 25:

While number of followers isn’t the best measure, it’s the most measurable measure. Each of these entrepreneurs post all or most of their own tweets. I’ve skipped the accounts that are personalities in film, music, sport or politics where their posts and followers aren’t mostly entrepreneurial.

If I’ve missed any entrepreneurs who have equally high followings and that you follow, post a link to them in the comments and use this as a resource for yourself and your network.

Happy reading and re-tweeting!
