Accountants on Twitter? You Better Believe It!

Pic credit: Our Geek Life

One of the greatest resources for today's CPA is social media, we've been telling you that from the beginning. A few years ago you had to dig hard and deep to find CPAs using social media but now they are everywhere from blogs to Twitter to Facebook.

Shameless self-promotion disclaimer: You can also find your Roger CPA exam experts at @Kristin_Lynes, @Willard_Monroe, @morganives, and @Adrigonzo. If you have a CPA exam question for any of us, feel free to write and we might address it on CPA Exam Expert!

In the interest of connecting future CPAs with the resources and connections they need to help them in their careers, we've decided to share a little list of who's who among tweeting accounting professionals. Keep in mind that this list is by no means comprehensive and if we missed anyone, please be sure to let us know in the comments! And don't forget to follow Roger on Twitter!
