76 Private Investigation Professionals You Should Follow on Twitter

  • October 09, 2011
  • by PInow Staff

Private investigators rely on real-time information and the latest forms of communication, so it makes sense that they would embrace Twitter. Twitter enables private investigators to share breaking news, network and even have a little fun - all with short messages of 140 characters or fewer.

PInow decided to compile a list of the top tweeting private investigators because there are many people who deserve to be recognized for using Twitter as another tool to keep the industry informed. While there is no specific formulaic ranking that was used here, we did reference influence as measured by WeFollow, number of followers, most recent activity and tweet relevance to the industry. This list will continue to grow and evolve each year, so please keep that in mind if you disagree with the rankings.

If you are a private investigator and you actively tweet, please contact us to get added to our "Up and Coming" list at the bottom of this post.
