Top Finance People to Follow on Twitter: Market Folly's Alpha List

Given the various "who to follow on Twitter" posts that have popped up this year, we thought we'd add a group of around 50 people we find insightful: the alpha list.  Note that this list is approached from a buyside mindset: it focuses on equity analysis, market flow, and hedge funds.  After all, Gordon Gekko once said: "the most valuable commodity I know of is information."
