The Best Finance People on Twitter: The Snubs


Yesterday, the folks over at Business Insider generated a lot of buzz on Twitter after they released a list of 101 finance people you should follow. To be sure, Twitter has become a prime source for information on the market, and, while we certainly agree with their list, there were a few notable absences. In no particular order, here are our top 20 other twitter accounts we think people interested in finance and the stock market should follow:
