49 Great PR People on Twitter Chosen by Graduates

twitterHot on the heels of my 50 PR Blogs Chosen By Graduates blog post, I asked the current batch of Tayor Bennett Foundation trainees to each list their ten favourite PR people on Twitter.  Links to the grads’ Twitter accounts and blogs with their reasons for their choices are below, followed by the full list (which you can follow here).  I gave them free reign, so absolutely no guidance in terms of who I rate on Twitter.  There’s also this handy list of PR influencers by Lissted – which I also didn’t tell them about before they put their lists together.

Interestingly in this and both the PR blogs list, there are few geographical boundaries.  The PR practitioners chosen are based not only in the UK, where the graduates are, but also North America, Australia and Asia.  Perhaps a sign that entry-level pracitioners don’t care where you are if you have something interesting to say, and that they already value global opinion and ideas.

By the way, these six (really fabulous) graduates leave the Foundation’s PR training programme in mid-November and are about to start job hunting so if you need bright, well-trained grads to join your PR agency or in-house comms team give me a shout.
