    Wallstreet100.com follows the 100 most important Twitter accounts in finance, + market data & news.

    The reason why we created this site was because we were sick of constant switching between CNBC, Bloomberg etc and Twitter (which is a great place for investors...).

    Would be great to get some feedback here! https://wallstreet100.com/index.php

    Its a nice idea, but aggregation sites are a tough sell since most people are already fixed on their preferred sources.

    Still, its always good to be developing ideas, keep at it!

    thanks for the response. I know, but we saw an opportunity for an aggregation site in this case. Here are the benefits:

    1. You get news from the most important sources in finance AND tweets. I imagine if you are a broker, a financial journalist, or a investor, and you’re sick of flicking through different sites, this site covers it all. Twitter is increasingly becoming an important news source, and we are bringing it all out in the real world.

    2. The downside is that you might prefer your own Twitter feed, but people tend to follow to many accounts and mix up personal interest with business. For instance, both sport accounts and investors/economists. Our site is also perfect for non-Twitter people who might be interested, but have not bothered to create an account.

    3. Our markets page includes a lot you don’t see everywhere, and it’s all there on the same page. Who else got a list of Meme Stock prices, and cryptocurrencies. And «selected stocks» in all regions.

    Would be cool if someone here tried the site, and gave some feedback. Maybe we could do some minor changes based on it.

    4. Yeah, almost forgot: We have also programmed the Twitter feed so newest posts always are on top. If you’re using Twitter, there’s always a ton of retweets, ads and other noise. With us, everything is «clean» and straight forward. Heck, I love Twitter, but now it just use it to check non-finance stuff.

    Thanks, Barry! Update: The site now has more than a 500 daily returning users, and it's growing every week (without any ads).:banana:

    Out of curiosity, how do you determine who the 100 "most important" Twitter accounts are?

    I ask because sometimes the loudest, or most popular, are not the ones we actually need to be listening to. Jim Cramer comes to mind...:rolleyes2:

    Yeah. I see what you mean. We have tried to be "neutral", and chosen the 100 based on a set of criterias. Jim Cramer is being laughed at, for good reasons, but he's still one of the most famous figures in the world of finance, and therefore a "must have" on our list. Even though you never listens to his advide, maybe you would still be interested in what he says/tweets.

    This is (officially) how we choose the 100:
    We follow 100 of the most important Twitter accounts in finance. Selection is based on a set of criterias including content quality, tweet frequency, number of followers, career/position, celebrity factor, diversity in opinions/area of interest and language (English only).

    seems easy to navigate. try to keep the content positive, which could be a challenge given that twitter is a cesspool of toxicity.
