The best way to learn is to follow and interact with those you respect. When it comes to money, where the world is heading, and how to act in our ever-present sea of change there are countless amazing people to learn from. I personally developed a long list of people on Twitter I follow that help me better understand the world and better live in it.

Here are 25 of my favorite Twitter follows, with a brief description of why I love to hear their thoughts. The list covers technologists, writers, investors of various stripes, and otherwise helpful sources. In no particular order:

  1. Anu Hariharan — Partner at Y Combinator; shares lots of interesting company stories and nuggets of business insight.
  2. James Clear — Author, weightlifter, and travel photographer; writes about building better habits and has rare insight across various disciplines.
  3. Subrahmanyam KVJ — Technologist; constantly shares fascinating articles, updates, and snippets about how technology continues to change the world.
  4. Nick Szabo — Blockchain, cryptocurrency, and smart contracts pioneer; brilliant guy that often shares his mental models and a great follow to better understand cryptocurrencies.
  5. Sriram Krishnan — Ex-Snap and Facebook; also shares great articles and insights about technological change.
  6. Ed Latimore — Boxer, writer, physicist; great, concise tweets about how to live a better life, and you can get more at his website. I respect his no BS tone
  7. Nassim Nicholas Taleb — Author of Fooled by Randomness, Black Swan, etc; gives thought-provoking insights about probability and, like Latimore, I dig his no BS style.

As you can tell, I have a heavy leaning towards technology and early-stage investors. Naturally, some of these will be appealing to you and others not so much. If you think any other Twitter handles are worth following, I’d love to hear it. Please share in the comments and let us all know!
