As you know, Twitter can be a great source of news & information, but, as you also know, you really have to follow the right accounts to get the good stuff. Here’s a look at the top 9 Twitter accounts who tweet crowdsourcing news, insight, and research. Whether it's tweeting out interesting new start-ups, helpful links to info-graphics on crowd-motivation, or pithy comments on misconceptions within crowdsourcing, these guys have it down to 140 characters or less.
Companies & Organizations:
@crowdweek - Crowdsourcing Week is a crowdsourcing conference being kicked off in 2013 in Singapore. As they ramp up to the event, Crowdweek staff are diligent in covering all things related to crowdsourcing..

@CrowdsourcingKC Editor of Daily Crowdsource, Crowdsourcing KC is not trying to crowdsource Kansas City, although he says that would be a lot of fun (and I don’t doubt he could do it if he tried). No, he simply loves crowdsourcing and shares his opinions, predictions, and other findings on the field on a regualr basis.
