When you follow someone on Twitter:
You choose who influences your thoughts.
Here are people I'm testing out this month:
Category: CRITICAL THINKING
• The first of three of the most brilliant people on Twitter who have a criminally low amount of followers
• This guy's mind 🤯🤯
• Just like Jeremy, low-key one of the smartest people on Twitter
• She has great takes on critical thinking and behavioral psychology
• Rivals Jeremy for percentage of tweets that make me smirk at their wit
• One of my favorite new follows
• Her tweets make you rethink how children should learn
• One of the most inspiring accounts about what the future of education can look like
• Elegantly crafts deep dives into the fascinating parts of business history
• One of the highest ratios of "wow, that's clever" tweets
• He's completely rethinking how people teach themselves new skills
• One of the clearest thinkers and communicators in the critical thinking space
• Buy her book on the topic. I'm about to read it.
• Brilliant writer and storyteller
• She wrote one of my favorite blog posts of the year:
• Everyone knows his books. But have you seen his Masterclass course? One of the most charismatic, insightful, and calming people to listen to
• Would love to talk with him about storytelling at some point
• The fiction writer on this list who puts a big smile on my face. He's who inspired my Creativity Faucet essay. (See my pinned Tweet.)
Category: VLOGGERS / VIDEO CREATORS
• Amazing robot videos and other clever shenanigans
• She inspires millions to create
• The most fun, charismatic, and awesome Twitch/YouTube personality?? Yes, I think so.
• Come for the chess strategy, stay for the memes
• This is my favorite storyteller on YouTube
• Inspires me to this day
• Brilliant thinker, storyteller, poet
• Deep-dive SpaceX livestreams
• Excites the heck out of you with his enthusiasm and joy for space travel
• The prototype for a compelling cross-medium storyteller and craftsperson
• Was hoping to catch him on Clubhouse at some point 😂
• Infographics and memes filtered through a brilliant mind
• Seriously, these infographics are great
• This is the guy who made those glitter bomb videos on YouTube!
• Also, super charismatic video presence that's worth reverse engineering
• Runs Y Combinator
• Sharp, no-BS insights on product and life as a founder
• Nick, Matt, and I grow @growthtactics together.
• Nick is one of the best minds in how to make life more adventurous.
• Matt is a brilliant strategist and a top notch mango in a sea of bananas.
Great journeys to follow
• @shivon builds Neuralink
• @stylebender reverse engineers MMA
• @gdb builds general AI
And, as for me:
No, I'm not related to Ben Shapiro.
I generally tweet about writing and startups:
P.S. I don't follow many people because I use Twitter lists instead.
That's how I "follow" new people every month.
This video explains it:
How can I forget the dude I admire so much I'm starting a podcast with him!
