Young Leaders on Twitter: AVTweeps Everyone in the Industry Should Follow, Part 2

By now, we hope you’ve followed the 17 AVTweeps we dubbed as opinion shapers and game players in the first installment of this updated list. If not, be sure to do so once you get to the end of this group of young #AVTweeps who have become leaders early in their careers.

You might recognize a few of these names from previous editions of the CI 40 Under 40—and (SPOILER ALERT!) you’ll probably be seeing a few more of them when the 2018 list comes out in August.

See the other categories of AVTweeps to follow at the bottom.
