The people CPAs need to follow on Twitter

The people CPAs need to follow on Twitter.


  1. Regulators: They influence our lives more today than ever before—and most of them are on Twitter. You’ll get important tax-filing tips and announcements from the IRS (@IRSNews and @IRSTaxPros), financial reporting updates from the SEC (@SEC_News) and  the Small Business Administration (@SBAgov), standard-setting news from FASB, GASB, and the FAF (@FAFNorwalk), and the latest on public company oversight from the PCAOB (@PCAOB_News), among others.
  2. Your CPA societies: Your own state’s CPA society is a must follow since it will be posting news related to the profession and details on upcoming society events and CPE programs. In addition, the AICPA offers a number of Twitter accounts that CPAs will want to follow. You’ll get accounting-related news from the Journal of Accountancy (@AICPA_JofA), tax updates from The Tax Adviser (@TheTaxAdviser), a daily overview of top headlines and analyses from CPA Letter Daily (@CPALetter_Daily), and updates about the Institute from AICPA Media Relations (@AICPANews).

Accounting / business media: In addition to the AICPA publications mentioned above, the accounting press shares invaluable information with its followers. Rick Telberg at CPA Trendlines (@CPA_Trendlines) has his hand on the pulse of the profession like no one else I know. He frequently surveys CPAs from coast to coast on issues such as workforce demographics, MAP issues, and tax season progress, then publishes the results in one of the profession’s most well-read and highly respected blogs. You’ll get in-depth analysis from AccountingWEB (@AccountingWEB). Acclaimed “Tax Girl” Kelly Phillips Erb (@TaxGirl) writes frequently for Forbes (@Forbes). Fast Company (@FastCompany) writes about innovation and leadership, CFO Magazine (@CFOpub) and CGMA Magazine (@CGMA) take the business-and-industry perspective, and TED Talks (@TEDTalks) offers cutting-edge insights on … well, almost everything.
