Twitter as a social media is a place where information moves very fast. A single tweet on a crypto-coin can cause a huge pump or dump.
It’s always good to follow the news for fundamentals as this influences the market in every way. The popular saying is “BUY THE RUMOR AND SELL THE NEWS”. This means when a rumour spreads about a coin you should probably buy against when the actual news is released before you sell because as the rumour will cause a huge volume rushing in. At the release of the actual news, the dumpers come in.
Below are some influencers of the crypto market on Twitter. There are more but these are my personal picks. Use the links I provided to follow them. This ensures you follow their genuine account because a lot of people impersonate them with fake accounts to scam people.
