My Favorite Twitter Feeds

Regular readers of this blog know that I am an active Twitter user, and, since starting to tweet in March, I have amassed a fairly decent following by sharing our home-grown content, as well as the best content from other retirement-related Twitter feeds.

But who do I follow?  Well, pretty much everything in the spectrum of retirement, including those who tweet about retirement plan issues, to those who discuss personal finance and even behavioral science. If it has a connection to retirement, chances are that I follow it.

While informative, many of these feeds can be quite bland, since they discuss, well, retirement plans. However, there are a few that stand out as both informative and fun to read. Three of my favorites are:

  • Ary Rosenbaum (@rosenbaumlaw) – Ary is an excellent, prolific columnist who just happens to be a retirement-plan attorney. Don’t believe that is possible? Check out his feed (and his excellent that401ksite, which is featured on our Top of Mind blogroll) and judge for yourself!  With topics ranging from Stealing Plan Assets is Easier than you Think to Plan Providers and Plan Sponsors Can Still Lose by Winning, readers immediately know that this is not your typical retirement plan content. And, did I mention that he writes about non-retirement-related topics as well? I can safely say that Ary is the only Twitter feed where I have encountered Tweets on fiduciary liability insurance and pro wrestling!   
  • Mr. Money Mustache (@m@mrmoneymustachemoneymustache) – Having heard so many retirement non-success stories in my lifetime, I was pleased to find quite the opposite on Twitter: a number of people who, in fact, had successfully retired early (in their 40s, 30s or even their 20s!), and are sharing their experiences to help others do the same. There is even a name for this movement: FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early).  Mr. Money Mustache, who retired at 30, was one of the first and most popular FIRE enthusiasts and he has remained one of the FIRE must-reads today.  A tell-tale sign that his feed (and related blog) is one of the best? I found more people retweeting his efforts on their own feeds than anyone else I follow on Twitter!
  • Teacher Investor (@TeacherInvestor) – This feed checks off all the boxes for something I want to read. Prolific content?  Check.  Interesting content?  Check.  Simple and easy-to-apply concepts?  Check.  Learn from the Tweets? Check.  Despite being a relative newbie to the Twitter world (he joined in March of 2017), he somehow has over 7,000 Tweets, nearly all of them worth reading!  If the volume of Tweets is too much for you, then stick to his excellent blog entries, such as Start Saving Money: Here's What You Need to Know or Hey Rookie: Your Five Financial Mistakes and How to Fix Them

And of course, if you check out these feeds on Twitter, be sure to stop by my Twitter feed (@MikeWebb_CRG) as well and let me know what you think!
