The parameters of this poll are:

Great traders that really put out great tweets that are either informative, entertaining, funny, educational, on the right side of the market, or all of the above BUT their number of followers is not equal to their value added.

Tweet value versus total followers should be considered. Many twitter accounts with high follower counts were nominated because voters thought someone with 10,000 followers should have had 100,000.

Of course this poll is purely opinions about the value that the voters have found in others on twitter. I do believe this will be a great way for us all to find the hidden gems, great traders that are using twitter for social networking and fun but are not really looking for followers. This ballot is a 100% result of nominations from others and I did not pick any of these traders myself. The poll is set up for one vote per voter so please let us all know of great traders that we should all be following by casting your vote. Polling will close in one week. If your favorite is not on it you can vote for them under other and their votes will still be counted. I will create a top 10, 25, or more list depending on how many get meaningful votes. Thanks for your participation.

Here is a link to the full poll.

Here is a twitter list of all the nominations if you want to follow them this week and see who gets your vote if you haven’t heard of any of them.
