The 100 Best Twitter Handles in the Arab World – A List for the Arab Entrepreneur

One of the hallmarks of a strong digital economy is knowledge sharing. A network of conferences and influencers must lead the distribution of information that will help us tackle problems like low credit card adoption that hold back ecommerce in the region.

That’s what we are trying to do here at Payfort, on this blog and elsewhere, by participating in conversations, interviewing exciting new leaders and sharing our own expertise with the community.

Social networks are instrumental in nudging that process along, especially Twitter which has always been a great way to fill your empty moments (if you have any) with incisive reading that can help your company.

So without further ado we present our list of the 100 people you have to follow if you are an entrepreneur in the Arab World.

We’ve turned it into a Twitter list so you can follow the whole thing, or just pick and choose from the categories below.

Ecommerce

Unsurprisingly ecommerce and digital marketing experts are highly active on social media. We had a lot of great candidates to pick from here so we were in for some tough decisions:

Payments is obviously very close to our heart, but it’s still a niche topic. With that in mind we had to reach outside of the Arab World and include some of the most influential people globally:

    Awesome list, would’ve loved however, if you used embedded twitter screens instead of images, so that readers can directly add the ones they’d want to without having to leave the blog post.

      Wow. I didn’t even think of that! Sure would have saved me some time too 🙂 Thanks for the feedback Mohammad!
