As if we needed to tell you, not all tweets are created equal. Some are not only worth following, but also essential for anyone starting or running a business. This month, Entrepreneur kicks off a new feature, asking business leaders to name their 10 top Twitter feeds, and why. First up: A mix of business, culture, tech and news, chosen by our Editor-in-Chief Amy Cosper (that is, @EntMagazineAmy).

Direct, no-nonsense tweets on economic news from around the world.

A must-follow for social media trends, including business, culture, and politics. Entertaining, too.
