Every Investor Should Follow These 23 Twitter Feeds
Everybody's doing it.
It's become so mainstream that when somebody hacks the Associated Press Twitter feed, it moves the Dow more than 100 points. If you've resisted the Twitter experience so far, give it a try.
The secret to using Twitter is to be choosy. Don't follow just anybody. Constrain your list to the feeds that will provide you with the most important (and reliable) information.
Whether you're new to Twitter or somebody that has thousands of followers, the key to getting the most out of it is to follow the right people and organizations. We put together a list to get you started.

This is the feed for Twitter's awesome (and free) service called Tweetdeck. Investors can use the online aggregator to set up streaming feeds of lists, hashtags, and accounts. If that's too Twitter-nerd for you, here's the translation: In one column you could set up a stream of any tweet that includes the hashtag #investing (or any other hashtag).
In another, you can view your Twitter account that streams all of your followers. Finally, in another column, any Twitter lists you follow. (Check it out. You'll understand.)
Without trying to appear pompous, we tweet out our feature articles and news with only a slight delay and greatly appreciate any and all Twitter followers we acquire.
