Twitter might have been a bit of an investor disappointment on the IPO front, but the company still shows ever-increasing numbers of active users — 307 million by the end of the third quarter of 2015.

So it’s still a solid social media outlet for marketing your business and even finding clients.

If you’re not on Twitter yet — or if you are, but could be more conscious about using it — then here’s a quick way to get up-to-speed with the rest of the users online: build your follow list. This will help you understand how your competition is using Twitter, and it’ll also give you plenty of opportunities to retweet the best from your list before you start creating your own tweets.

Without further ado, here are our suggestions for the best real estate accounts to follow.
