Fun-loving accountants step out on Twitter

You don't need to be mad to be an accountant, but it helps. Advisors reveal what they really get up to outside of number-crunching

Twitter’s been fun. Got to know, chat to, some really interesting advisors over the past few months.

Recent weeks have seen some new followers (or Disciples of Kev, as I prefer them to be known) from firms and accountants I’ve never heard of before. That’s a good thing, and definitely one of the advantages of social networking.

Another advantage is finding out some of the more about what number-crunchers do outside of the day job.

Step forward Mark Benfield and Robert Bradley, whose Twitter biogs had me laughing out loud (or should that be LOL?).

With just hours in between them following me, I wondered if they’d both conspired to outdo each other in the description stakes.

Firstly Mark Benfield of inbusinessaccountants.com:
@MarkLeeBenfield
Owner of InBusiness Chartered Management Accountants. Business adviser. Bass guitarist in Cream Of Clapton tribute band. Wolves fan. Amateur chef.

Then Robert Bradley of Bradley and Associates:
@rjbradley
Accountant to Owner-Managed Businesses and High Net Worth Individuals, Business Writer, Speaker & Mentor, Karaoke Singer, Salsa Dancer, Husband, Son and Friend.

Genius stuff guys – although their Twitter postings haven’t exactly matched their hype so far. Come on gang, live up to your Twitter bio!
