For all the talk we’ve had on Ypulse about what Twitter isn’t —the new teen online hangout of choice—there’s much to be said for what it is—a dynamic resource for bite-size insights and relevant links—and for how folks in the youth marketing and media space can take advantage by following the right people, brands, etc. We’ve learned this first hand with our own Ypulse Twitter account (HUGE props go to Youth Advisory Board members Meg and Libby for all their help maintaining it!) which now has 1k followers, and wanted, in turn, to share some fellow Twitterers with Ypulse readers. And so without further ado we present you a sampling of some of the best people to follow for youth marketing info and insight (other than Ypulse obviously). Feel free to leave your own suggestions in comments - we’ll definitely do a follow up post with more folks to follow as well as youth brands to follow!
