If you want to keep up with the latest financial news and analysis, Twitter can be very useful. This social network allows you to browse through tweets and click on links that interest you, which is more efficient than surfing many different websites. Fortunately, many of the world’s top financial experts and organizations are on Twitter. The following are the five top accounts to follow on Twitter if you want to increase your financial savvy.
This is the Twitter feed for the popular website and publication Fast Company. It’s a good source of information for investors, small businesses and entrepreneurs. You’ll find lots of information on current economic news and start-ups as well as innovative new products that are altering the marketplace. While it tends to focus on issues of interest to younger readers, it’s useful for people of all ages who want to stay connected to the latest trends.
Forbes, whose first print issue was published in 1917 has been a leading business magazine long before the days of the internet. It has, however, kept up with the digital age and is now well known for its insightful articles and tweets. Their Twitter feed contains links to information on all aspects of society and culture as well as up to the minute reporting on financial news.
Unlike some of its competitors, such as Forbes and The Wall Street Journal, Business Insider started off relatively recently, in 2009, as a website and has no history as a print publication. It has, however, grown to become a leader in its field.

Following its Twitter feeds is the easiest way to keep up with this organization’s many news stories and announcements.
