Top 30 Dragon Boat Influencers on Twitter

We can not deny the huge role that social media play in our world today. It is widely used in a lot of industries, from small and medium-sized businesses to large corporations; because it has been proven to be beneficial in many ways. Twitter is just one of them.

In the dragon boat world, the twitterists (people who tweet) are like the Brand Managers who embrace social media; they promote themselves (their teams) and the sport in general. It is also a powerful tool to share links or convey short messages (140 characters) about trainings, races or any other announcements.

It is a quick platform to urgently broadcast the cancellation of practice. In just one tweet, you can circulate your message or advisories to your team members–your followers. Should you need to mention or thank your sponsors, partners or volunteers, you can be more specific, too, by tagging them in your post.
