  • SwapsTrader

    How can this list not include @moneyscience or @carlcarrie in the Top 50 – far more influential than many others in institutional finance

    • Jen Cohen

      Thanks SwapsTrader for the suggestions. There are always a few that can be added, which is why we appreciate the comments. Agreed that @moneyscience provides a nice feed of financial-related information and @carlcarrie focuses on a mix of tech/financial links.

      Thanks for reading and contributing!

  • Brianna Diemer

    Hi, Jen. Nice list! I’d also recommend @JimMarous, @ABABankingNews, @brettking, @JeanineSko and @Visible_Banking.
