While there are many social media lists out there of people and businesses to follow on Twitter, Investment News' own Power 20 "Power Tweeter" Michael Kitces, partner and director of research for Pinnacle Advisory Group and publisher of The Kitces Report and the blog Nerd's Eye View, maintains a list of people financial advisers should follow on Twitter. Not surprisingly, Michael Kitces himself is very active sharing ideas and content for financial planners on Twitter.
Check out Michael's list below to see how some financial planners are building their own businesses around Twitter, and where to get interesting news and information via Twitter about the business. And remember, one of the benefits of Twitter is just to listen – which can be done entirely free of compliance hassles – so it's easy to get started.
