When we asked a few of our friends how they stay on top of the crazy fast-paced industry that is the world of marketing and advertising, the number one answer was, of course, Twitter. Many of the Twitter accounts that people follow, however, are the accounts of popular websites, as opposed to people. So we thought it would be incredibly useful to create the ultimate list of websites/news sources and their corresponding Twitter accounts to follow to stay in touch with the industry, and what better way to create this list than by crowdsourcing it?
The idea is to knock out the big ones here and let you fill in the blanks. Please share the sites you use to stay on top of the advertising world with us on Twitter, then we’ll update our Ad Sites Twitter list with the best of the best! Tweet your responses @theadclub with the hashtag #AdSites.
