Self-anointed thought leaders, beware!
Share

Barry Feldman

Do you know that there are more than 180,000 self-proclaimed social media gurus, ninjas, etc. on Twitter alone?

I don’t have the numbers for self-proclaimed thought leaders, but I would be ready to bet that there are just as many.

“When I stumble into a self-anointed thought leader, I unfollow them. Immediate grounds for unlike, uncircle, unsubscribe. I might even unpin ‘em if their pins weren’t so damn thoughtful,” says Barry Feldman.

I actually do too.

A scathing but important rant. Read it.
