10 Apple Experts You Need To Follow On Twitter
Interested in learning more about Apple? Find out how you can have the world's top Apple analyst answer your questions LIVE on Benzinga's #PreMarket Prep show this Friday, March 6 at 8:35 a.m. ET by going here.
Benzinga doesn't have the answer, but there are plenty of Apple watchers on social media who can make some educated guesses.
While Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster is considered the one of world's top analysts, and is known for moving Apple share price, he doesn't have a presence on Twitter. Traders do have the opportunity to have Munster answer their questions about Apple live this Friday before the market opens.
Until then, here are some other Apple analysts, investors and journalists to follow on Twitter:
Benedict Evans (@BenedictEvans), Venture Capitalist at Andreessen Horowitz
Part of one of the leading Silicon Valley technology venture capital firms, Benedict Evans knows what he's talking about. His analysis and observations are both keen and astute.
Apple created a super-premium phone price band, made it into 10-20% of volume, and took the margins. Not sure cars have same opportunity

Charles Sizemore (@CharlesSizemore), CFA & Principal of Sizemore Capital Management
Charles Sizemore is honest about being bullish on Apple, but he's not a perma-bull. He tweets a lot of articles and standalone facts related to the tech giant.
Interesting food for thought on $AAPL: According to Barrons, only about 15% of iPhpne user base has upgraded to iPhone 6 so far.

Ben Thompson (@monkbent), Author & Founder of Stratechery
Ben Thompson is a former of employee for both Apple and Microsoft, so he's got more than enough industry experience to effectively analyze Apple's strategy. His observations are accompanied by clever wit and sarcasm.
If Apple makes a car Gene Munster is going to be so upset.
