Today, to prove Twitter's all-around utility, I offer an annotated list of must-follow Twitter accounts.
Some focus on the stock market and investing, others do not. The selections run the gamut from those whose tweet infrequently, but always deliver, to regular Tweeters who are clever enough to clog your feed without much annoyance.
#1: I always explain diminishing marginal utility in terms of cars, watches, or women.Steven Carraher, @StevenCarraher -- You've likely never heard of Carraher -- and he Tweets A LOT, at least 15 to 20 times an hour. That's usually a recipe for disaster. However, his tweets are almost always links to excellent short and long reads, often tech-related, though not always. Use an extension such as Twitter-owned TweetDeck to follow a tweet-heavy account like this. You can add Carraher to a list of accounts, or give him his own column in TweetDeck to put his tweets in a separate feed. Harvard Research, @HarvardResearch -- This is a solid account to follow if you like academic research. Each day, it posts about two links to Harvard University research in several areas.
#1: If you want a friend, get a dog. If you want a friend with benefits, find some chick who's in PR.
#1: I'm afraid at these levels. I feel like we're approaching an inflection point. #2: I'm hedged. #1: How so? #2: Extremely rich.
