The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the fifth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog! Regardless of whether or not our US / Canadian readers believe the Groundhog Day legend, we’re overjoyed to announce this week’s featured #FF Twitter account … a global venture and growth equity firm who has helped entrepreneurs build over 3oo companies in nearly 30 years.
Here, we will dive deeper into the Tweets of @accel and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who can list Facebook, AdMob, Kayak and Macromedia (among many others) in their portfolio!
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said “a company who can list Facebook, AdMob, Kayak and Macromedia (among many others) in their portfolio” in the same sentence. The ‘WOW’ factor is impressive, right?
