Angel Tweets To Keep You Au Courant

Scads of valuable updates on angel activities and seed stage investing appear early on Twitter, but many angels are uncomfortable with the medium, either because they are unfamiliar with the syntax or they are drowned in a flood of irrelevant items. To use Twitter effectively it is necessary to separate the wheat from the chaff, then to recognize which one to discard.

As an experiment, we thought we would try doing this selection for you, at least this one time. Below are twenty tweets, pulled carefully from a haystack of thousands. You may recognize many of the tweeters. To access their wisdom, simply click any url posted in a tweet.

Were you on Twitter, to follow future tweets from a source you would use their identifier, which is preceded by the “@” symbol. For example, to follow Angel Investing News on Twitter you would follow @GeorgeMcQuilken.

If you would like to view additional tweets from any of the Twitterati shown below, just click on their photograph.

Enough explanation, try looking at a few tweets. Let us know if you find them valuable. We could easily publish an occasional dedicated post such as this one or we could add a few tweets at the end of our regular posts.
