Twitter is one of the most useful social media platforms. Unlike other social networks, it lets you connect with people you don’t know personally, but you know their tweets will add value to your feed. You can find experts sharing invaluable knowledge and experiences in almost any field.

They share ideas, insights, and data that will help you expand your thinking and become a better investor.
