There’s a lot of great marketing content on Twitter, but sometimes it can all be a bit… much. Especially when people are only tweeting links to their own articles and other mindless marketing drivel that sounds like it was written by an algorithm.
It seems like such a ridiculous thing to be nostalgic for, but it’s refreshing to be scrolling through Twitter and find a tweet that actually reads like it was written by a human.
So here’s 15 Twitter accounts that won’t just bring some marketing insight to your feed – they’ll bring humor and a much-needed human touch, too.
1. Shane Snow (@shanesnow) – Co-Founder, Contently
Contently has been changing the content marketing game ever since they appeared on the scene, treating it with a seriousness typically reserved for journalism not centered around selling products. A lot of that can likely be attributed to co-founder Shane Snow’s’s background in journalism; he’s written about technology for WIRED, Fast Company and others.

3. Max Temkin (@maxtemkin) – Co-Creator, Cards Against Humanity
A graphic designer by trade who broke into the world of game design with the modest launch of a card game on Kickstarter: Cards Against Humanity, now the best-selling game on Amazon. Max tweets a lot of jokes, but also genuine insights on design (like this piece on rapid prototyping) and the case studies of their various, bizarre Black Friday campaigns.
