You can read a lot about a person from the accounts they follow on Twitter, whether they use the platform to get information about the latest hot startup, follow trends in Web3, see positive affirmations or just read on. celebrity gossip. To get a glimpse of the mindset of a dozen business and technology leaders on Twitter, we looked at the types of accounts they follow and mapped out some of the similarities between them. Of course, similarly, a retweet is not an endorsement, following someone doesn’t mean the follower fully agrees with all their opinions, but it does provide insight into who many business leaders listen to and the information they value on social media.

The Freethinkers

Chamath Palihapitiya (@chamath)
Jack Dorsey (@jack)

Trying to define the philosophies of Chamath Palihapitiya, CEO of Social Capital and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey? Their followers don’t help much. From left-wing intellectual Cornel West and Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to alt-right figure Mike Cernovich and GOP prodigy Ben Shapiro, they’re just window shopping at the market for ideas.

The Geopolitical Nerds

Bill Ackman (@BillAckman)
Marc Andreesen (@pmarca)

Pershing Square Capital’s Bill Ackman and A16z founder Marc Andreessen (who follows no fewer than 20,600 accounts) shares an interest in the usual suspects (investors and entrepreneurs) but also follows both defense journalist Paul McLearyhistorian of WWII Guy Waltersand pseudonymous account Jomini of the Westwho tweets battlefield updates about Ukraine.

The main user

Elon Musk (@Elon Musk)

Elon Musk, the poster boy of today’s inequality in follow ratio, has 102.8 million followers and only follows 122 accounts himself, including Tesla, Dogecoin, Rick and Mortyand his mother, model Maye Musk. (Somehow, he also shares nearly a third of his followers with Palihapitiya.)

The Web3 investors

Alexis Ohanian (@alexisohanian)
Kathryn Haun (@katie_haun)
Venture builders Alexis Ohanian (776 Capital) and Kathryn Haun (Haun Ventures) reveal their passion for blockchain investing with shared followers of Web3 entrepreneurs as the founder of Rainbow crypto wallet Mike Demarais. They also both follow Ohanian’s wife, tennis star Serena Williamsand comedian Mindy Kaling.

The philanthropists

Bill Gates (@BillGates)
Mike Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg)
Melinda French Gates (@MelindaGates)

As prominent billionaires who put a lot of effort into their philanthropic agendas, follow these three stories that underscore their involvement in public affairs – world leaders, American politicians, other humanitarians like chef Jose Andresand NGOs including the United Nations and the World Health Organization.

The Changers

Freada Kapor Klein (@TheRealFreada)
Ellen K. Pao (@ekp)

Venture capitalist Freada Kapor Klein, of Kapor Capital, and Project Include founder and former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao follow many of the same people — largely BIPOC entrepreneurs and activists focused on bringing equality to technology and Web3, such as Earthseed founder Ifeoma Ozoma, Kindred Ventures co-founder Kanyi Maqubela and Candice Morgan of Google Ventures. Pao also follows over 200 of the same accounts as Ohanian, suggesting they overlap despite their tense histories.
