Venture capital is such a huge subject that it's tough to separate the posers from expert opinion. So, we decided to compile a list of the most influential voices in venture capital on Twitter.
Why this list? Well, it's based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity and our own subjective judgment. One note: Some influential voices are not included either because they don't have active Twitter accounts or they tweet on a wider range of subjects.
Here, our goal is to provide the best possible personalities in the VC world. We have excluded organizations or news providers and have limited the list to those individuals in the trenches of venture capital investing.
Did we miss somebody? Let us know.
