I love Twitter for a lot of reasons. One of them is because it's a great way to gather data. Here are three accounts worth following because of the good information they always provide:

  • @pewinternet: all kinds of great research about who's using the internet and how from The Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project.
  • @CatalysticInc: excellent source of data on women, including economic power, professional issues and more from the mother of all women's research, Catalystic.
  • @mashable: a mix of how-to and analysis on all things social media from the reigning authorities.

Who do you follow for your daily dose of data?
