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.

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