More than just connecting with friends and family, social media is now being used as a means of brand communication and client building by companies. Such is the reach of social media, that certain CEOs have taken to it in order to create a direct channel of communication between the company, its client and consumers. A CEO on Twitter is tantamount to a Chief Reputation Officer, one who upholds the brand’s image while also opinionating on trending topics. Here are some CEOs who have influential and impressive Twitter accounts.
Kunal Shah, Freecharge
Observational humor is the best kind of humor right? Kunal has a lot of that going on in his Tweets. Plus, he has a lot of useful insights into startups, cashless transactions and consumer behavior. Helps you go Cashless, gives you a chuckle or two. What more could you want from a CEO?
High IQ without a curious insight seeking mindset is like having an iPhone 7 only for Whatsapp.

Vijay Shekhar, Paytm
He’s been lauded for his strong and effective social media presence many a times. He seems to be on his toes answering customer queries left and right. Further, his clever commentary, interesting Retweets and news pertaining to Paytm, make it a must follow account.

Tough business model of news when FB / Snapchat feed is the newsfeed of millennial. Sadly, views matter less, page views matter more :-/

Swati Bhargava, CashKaro.com
Needless to say she’s our favorite and most loved CEO, but we’re not being biased. The account features useful information about CashKaro and everything that happens inside the office making her the most transparent co-founder ever. Plus, you can read some great blogs, find some amazing deals and sneak peeks into the awesome events she attends.

Deepinder Goyal, Zomato
Two words come to mind looking through Deepinder’s Twitter feed – funny and informative. If it’s funny and pertains to Zomato, he’s Tweeted/Retweeted about it. Also expect a lot of Retweeted customer love.

History repeats itself in interesting ways. The role railroad barons played for electricity, telecom barons are doing so for the Internet. pic.twitter.com/QFA90uZAOS
