    Great list here – personally I think that everyone in my top 12 list of internet marketing tweeters http://www.boom-online.co.uk/alternative-top-tweeters deserves a spot!

    If I were pushed to name one tweeter I think you’re missing it’d be Mike Essex http://www.twitter.com/Koozai_Mike. He shares great info on SEO and he’s a lovely guy too.
