Top 12 #DigitalPublishing Twitter Accounts to Follow in 2013

Expert publishing blog opinions are solely those of the blogger and not necessarily endorsed by DBW.

Over the past few months, I’ve contributed to DBW’s news coverage of the growing e-learning, academic and higher education markets; kept up-to-date on the developments between publishers and libraries; and eavesdropped on experienced digital publishing journalists and commentators. And a good bit of my time learning about the digital publishing industry has been spent on Twitter.

With the hindsight of three months as Digital Book World’s content producer, I’ve put together this short list of Twitter accounts, accounts that I’ll be following in 2013 to become further immersed in the digital publishing space, organized by topic.
