Love Twitter? So do we. And what we love even more is connecting with others out there who help us bring the best career advice to young professional women like you.

So we’ve scoured the Twitterverse to bring you a list of experts who do just that. They range from big names you’re sure to recognize to lesser-followed, up-and-coming tweeters. But what they all have in common is a knack for tweeting interesting, relevant advice on getting the job, succeeding at work, and having a fulfilling career. Check out our 40 favorites!
