UPDATED: Wednesday, August 6, 2014
Never before have Shakespeare’s words, “All the world’s a stage…” been more appropriate! Thanks to the social universe you can now connect the dots with everyone and everything in a matter of seconds.
It’s little wonder then, that Strategic Objectives’ blog post Should CEO’s Tweet? Risks and Rewards attracted mega social pick-up around the world. The piece detailed some of the up- and downsides of corporate leaders tweeting and lamented that Social CEOs are rare and hard-to-find. In fact recent research shows that fully 70 per cent of the world’s CEOs have NO presence on any online platform, much less Twitter!
The fact remains, however, there are a goodly number of CEOs around the world on Twitter; and there’s really no better way to tap into their 24/7, non-stop collective stream of social consciousness than a Twitter List.
That’s why our mighty @SO_pr team set out to create the Ultimate List of Social CEOs on Twitter – a new and definitive list, at least for today, of CEOs who tweet. For Part 3, our 10 Commandments for the Social CEO, click here.
The Ultimate List of Social CEOs on Twitter
You can find and follow our Ultimate List of Social CEOs on Twitter here. Please keep reading for some analysis; to review the entire list, all in one place; and to find out who helped us create it.
Why Follow the Leaders? A Social CEO Stream of Consciousness
It’s clear from following this Twitter list that some CEOs tweet way more than others. Our CEO stream of consciousness spans the globe, and includes the famous, such as @Oprah, @rupertmurdoch, @richardbranson and Mark Cuban, @mcuban; and the infamous, such as reality TV star @jefholm, CEO of People Water, who made a name for himself last year as Emily, The Bachelorette’s fiancé – a fact that is not mentioned in his bio!
It also features CEOs who are not only the face of their product or service, but whose service is, in fact, their Twitter account – such as @mashable’s Pete Cashmore, @timoreilly, CEO of O’Reilly Media, and @markraganCEO of Ragan’s PR Daily.
The Ultimate List of Social CEOs on Twitter is as diverse as the people on it. As a whole it presents a unique view from the top of the corporate ladder. You will see that CEOs’ individual Twitter styles are very different – some converse and engage, others broadcast one-way. Some offer personal info like “I’m meeting (fill in name of celebrity) for breakfast,” others give stock tips, or promote their latest book or product. The individuals on this list present a rare, unedited glimpse into the business world, something impossible before Twitter made its indelible mark on the social landscape.
On With the Show!
Without further ado, here’s the list, ordered by follower count. At the very end of this stream you’ll find our Social CEO Stream of Consciousness – a constantly updating stream of CEO tweets. Enjoy!

Our awesome Toronto Social PR team at Strategic Objectives has been compiling and growing our Ultimate List of Social CEOs on Twitter since it’s debut with only 60 names in October, 2012.
We owe huge thanks to the many generous netizens who helped us compile our original list, including @amyvernon, @sarcatrist and @markwschaefer, @tompick to name drop only a few. Additional sources included Businessweek, Forbes, Inc, WSJ and more. Our methodology is detailed in our original post Should CEOs Tweet?
Please share additional CEO names we may have missed in the comments (up and running again, at last), or tweet us @SO_pr, so we can keep it useful and up-to-date. Your feedback and input are very welcome.
