25 Twitter Pages Diverse Students Should Follow

25 Twitter Pages Diverse Students Should FollowWhen the Twitter social media platform began, people couldn’t imagine how relevant 140 characters could be.

Many thought it wouldn’t last. Well it has.

Twitter has grown to be a favorite for millions sharing and communicating about every possible subject you can imagine.

Like most Twitter users, we have carved out our little corner of Twitter where we meet, greet and tweet on issues related to workplace diversity, professional development, career advice and work success. Our audience is primarily African American college students, emerging and experienced professionals and entrepreneurs.  Basically, if you are about life success through career success,  job search, education, college life, human resources, leadership, industry and professional branding  – our Twitter page is a resource.

Although there are thousands of Twitter pages where career experts dole out free career advice, insight and information, there are many diverse college students that don’t know where to go for career success tips.

Here is our updated list of 25 Twitter Pages Diverse Students Should Follow for 2019.

Why these 25 Twitter Pages Diverse Students Should Follow?

Why, in my opinion, are these the top 25 Twitter pages diverse students should follow?

  • They routinely include images of diverse professionals.
  • They cite data and resources relevant for a diverse community.
  • No relevant issue seems off limits.
  • They share honest advice that students and emerging professionals need to hear.
  • They stay current (a biggie for me).
  • The advice shared is in line with one of the 5 Points in the Career Development Model that we believe works.

Of course we would love for you to follow us @HBCUCareerCntr where we primarily serve the diverse community of students, employees, families and alumni of America’s 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
