We're celebrating small business owners and entrepreneurs during National Small Business Week April 30th – May 6th. Read on for a list of accounts and hashtags that you can follow to stay informed, feel empowered, and be inspired.

Accounts to follow

  • @SBAgov – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) focuses on the needs of small businesses, and runs National Small Business Week. This year they’re hosting events across the country. Follow them for the latest in what’s happening throughout the week.

  • @TwitterBusiness — That's us! We’ll be sharing our best tips and resources throughout the week, from mastering the basics to planning creative campaigns.

It’s also a great idea to follow your local Small Business Administration (for example, @SBAPacificNW or @SBAatlantic) or other businesses in your area to be aware of local, business-related trends and conversations long after National Small Business week has ended.

Hashtags to watch and use

You can filter search.twitter.com by “top Tweets” to see the most popular uses of these hashtags:
