The best place to get fresh updates on any subject is to follow a set of great influencers on Twitter.
For those who are interested in Digital Marketing and SEO, I have analysed more than 40 twitter influencer profiles and here I present the best 10 profiles to follow.
Analysis was based on six parameters.
- Original Content
- Quality Retweets
- Post Engagement by the followers
- Post Engagement by the Author
- Followers Count
- Following Count
Read why I used these parameters, how I carried out the analysis and how an influencer profile can be further improved here,

I will first list down the top 10 profiles and then all the influencer profiles I analysed.
1. Brian Dean
One follows Brian for SEO updates. So he gives his audience what they expected by posting some quality content originally created by him and by retweeting relevant content.
On top of that, he has a pretty decent engagement in posts by his followers. Brian also takes his time to reply most of them.

However, the engagement of his 1.3 million followers is at a considerably low level
10. Ian Lurie
Ian tweet some original content from his blog Ianlurie.com as well.
The reason how his twitter account managed to stay at the top 10 is his active engagement with the followers
11. More Digital Marketing and SEO influencers to follow in twitter
I have given the above list based on certain parameters which I discuss in this blog post.
However, there are more twitter accounts you should follow if you are interested about the subject.
For example, some of these twitter accounts could not come to the top five just based on the fact that their engagement with the followers was low or they did not retweet at all.
Therefore based on the parameters I used for this particular analysis, I had to cut them off even though they had some quality content posted regularly.
So this is the list of influencers I considered and I recommend you to checkout their twitter accounts and follow them as well. Following list is not in any order.
