Twitter is a great place to share, network and interact with people in all areas of the startup community. Accounts such as my @StartupPerth regularly share interesting links and news for startup founders.
Both seasoned and beginner Twitter users alike will hopefully find an account that interests them from this list of Australian individuals, brands, media and investors that often or always tweet on the startup topic.
