It's that time of the year again.
As we head in 2018, it's time to reassess your financial strategy and who you follow and where you are getting information plays an important role in your decision making, subconsciously or not. Twitter Inc TWTR has emerged as a critical platform for trading information and gauging stock sentiment.
So without further ado, here's a list of 10 financial Twitter names to follow...if you don't follow them already.
John McAfee – @officialmcafee
Given the rise of interest and enthusiasm in cryptocurrency, blockchain technology and ICOs, notable bitcoin bull John McAfee is a must follow for his insight into the industry. There's never a dull moment as the brash, outspoken founder of global computer security company in his name offers up his takes on all the latest cryptocurrencies that we know so little about.
To my hater and my admirers: I listen to as much of your feedback as I can read, and I consider. But in the end I will follow my own heart. Cryptocurrency is changing the world. Turbulence, anger and frustration are inevitable. If you want to take it out on me, then I am here.— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) December 27, 2017
As I predicted, Bitcoin is rebounding and rapidly climbing after Christmas. It is still, by far, the best long term crypto investment, and I firmly stand by my prediction of $1 million by the end of 2020. pic.twitter.com/FaaSIuUS7i— John McAfee (@officialmcafee) December 26, 2017

QuothTheRaven - @QTRResearch
Self-proclaimed as news and analysis the market misses "from an Austrian perspective," Quoth The Raven is a good mix of market-moving ideas for traders to watch and the snarky humor that Twitter is so well known for.
