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:

Sozzi knows everything that matters on retail stocks.
Lots of trade ideas. Tends to focus on particular stocks for periods of time, but intensely breaks down and argues individual trade theses.
