@fredwilson -- If nothing else, the New York City venture capitalist will alert you every time he posts to his excellent blog, AVC: musings of a VC in NYC. Recently, Wilson defended Peter Thiel's decision to dump his Facebook ( FB) shares. Agree or disagree with Wilson, he provides solid insight from the inside. You'll learn a ton following him on Twitter and reading his blog. Behavioral Finance, @victorricciardi -- Behavioral Finance tweets links to stories that focus primarily on the psychology of investing. Easily one of my favorite investment-related accounts. Kara Swisher, @karaswisher -- There's no bigger scoopster in Silicon Valley than All Things D co-executive editor Kara Swisher. It's tough to find somebody with a better mix of insight, snark and wit. Sometimes she makes me angry, but that's a sure sign she's doing her job well. GS Elevator Gossip, @GSElevator -- Everybody loves to hate Goldman Sachs ( GS).

#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.
