Crowdsourced PR Twitter compendium: 50 accounts to follow

A week or so ago I asked my network for recommendations for people, media and blogs to follow on Twitter. We all love a Twitter list eh?

Inevitably there are lots of great accounts that I have missed. That’s because these are recommendations from my network. It’s personal. Different networks will yield different results.
