Follow on Twitter DublinGlobe.com

You’re probably already following Paddy Cosgrave (and if you’re not then click that link right now). But if you really want a proper perspective upon the Irish startup scene, whether you’re part of it or watching from abroad, then it’s worth following a select few of its key players on Twitter. Which is why we’ve put together this post: consider it your Irish Tech Twitter primer – the first in a series of lists of people we think are total legends.

Oh and if you notice someone missing (or are angry we forgot about you) then get in touch – you can reach us by email, on Facebook, and of course we’re on Twitter too.

1. Ed Fidgeon-Kavanagh
Founder of Startup Slides and Chief Presentationist at Clearpreso –an odd-sounding job title, but he’s the go-to guy for crafting an impressive pitch, as well as these Saul-esque business cards:

2. Kevin Abosch
Aside from taking all those lovely Web Summit portraits and the Faces of Ireland you see at the airport, Abosch works on Kwikdesk (its most recent product was Cryptoshift) and pens the occasional must-read Medium essay.

3. Ann O’Dea
O’Dea is CEO and editor-at-large of Silicon Republic – aside from offering tech news and insights, her Twitter feed is full of stories, meetups and events championing women in Irish tech.

4. Stephen McIntyre
You know you want to see inside Twitter’s Irish HQ… Aside from unique insights as the Managing Director at Twitter, McIntyre’s Twitter is a great collection of Irish stories, tech and non-tech.

5. Darragh Doyle
The person to know if you’re (a) Irish and (b) involved in the arts, Doyle does online strategy and community management for arts and business organisations and also looks after the @Ireland project.


6. Des Traynor
The co-founder of Irish breakout startup Intercom, Traynor now gravitates between Dublin and San Francisco. His Tweets offer a great insight into Irish tech.

7. Gene Murphy
The entrepreneur behind Redeem & Get and co-founder of Startup Ireland, Murphy is a serial retweeter and Dublin tech connector.

8. Paul Quigley
We share a building with Newswhip, Paul’s company, so we’re possibly a little biased, but his Twitter feed is a fascinating look into life in a thriving Dublin startup.

9. Gavin Sheridan
The founder of Vizlegal and former Storyful Innovation Director tweets a lot. But that’s a good thing–his Tweets cover Irish legal news, startup stuff and news on Dublin in general.

10. Andreea Wade
Wade is involved with tonnes of interesting Irish tech: she’s head of product at INM Ditial, organiser of Startup Weekend Dublin, and Founder of AskaTon events and Startup Hiking. She also has an adorable pet dog (below).
