If you want to get started on Twitter, it's hard to find a good list to follow, particularly in finance, trading, and economics.

Most of the "best of" lists for Finance Twitter are based on personal preferences or, worst of all, a simple follower count. The more followers, the better, seems to be the thinking. That's ridiculously misguided.

Much of Finance Twitter is dominated by insular circles that quote and retweet each other, fist-bumping and high-fiving. That leaves other accounts that might provide more use out in the cold.

So how do we find those accounts?

A great new service, SparkToro, lets you check the metrics that matter on a Twitter account. Not just the raw number of followers, but how engaged - and engaging - those accounts are. It tracks the metrics that truly matter, and comes up with scores to determine how potentially useful a Twitter account is to follow.

Working off of most of the "best of" lists for traders, investors, economists, journalists, and others in finance, we've gone through the SparkToro rankings and come up with the ultimate list of most useful people to follow on Finance Twitter. In deference to SparkToro, we're not revealing any of their metrics - we just combined the total scores available and then ranked all of the accounts from highest scoring to least.

What they have in common

The highest scoring accounts have an average follower base of 48,500, and an average total SparkToro score of 143 (this is the combined SparkScore and Engagement Score). These accounts have a healthy number of followers versus the number of accounts they follow, tend to post several times daily, and their posts get a lot of engagement, a sign that they're useful to the people who follow the accounts. Some popular accounts get penalized because they post too much, not generating much interaction with their followers. Others simply follow too many people, hoping to get followed back and boost their own follower count. Others aren't yet officially verified by Twitter or aren't added to many lists among their followers.

This an excellent list for those new to Twitter, or those looking for perhaps more useful accounts to follow than the usual ones based on flawed metrics. It's not exhaustive - surely there are some we missed - but we'll keep it updated and look for the best accounts to follow.

Here is the ultimate list of most useful Finance Twitter accounts:
