Since Bitcoin first exploded onto the scene, cryptocurrencies have been a hot subject. Incredibly, anyone who invested just $100 into Bitcoin in 2011 would have had over $2 million by mid-2018, according to Investopedia.
Having said that, the massive volatility of these currencies means that many newcomers look for expert opinion to help them decide whether the time is right to buy digital coins. Therefore, it is worth understanding who the top influencers on Twitter are and what they can tell you.
The co-founder of the Ethereum network is one of the most respected cryptocurrency experts around right now. His twitter account is @VitalikButerin and he has over 800 thousand followers at the time of writing.
Vitalik’s tweets often cover controversial subjects. He likes to get a debate going and posts about a range of other matters as well as cryptocurrencies. You can also read his latest thoughts on the official Ethereum blog, although he isn’t the only member of the team who posts on here.
Best-known as the creator of the Litecoin currency, Charlie Lee tweets from @SatoshiLite. At the time of writing, he has over 800 thousand followers and is pretty active when it comes to tweets and re-tweets. There is enough about digital coins, in general, to make it enjoyable for most readers, even if they don’t own Litecoin.
A lot of what he writes about is directly related to Litecoin and is biased in its favour, though. This can be balanced out by looking at impartial reviews and news articles as well. For instance, we can see independent reviews of the different exchanges, such as eToro and Coinbase, on Best Bitcoin Exchange, where Litecoin can currently be traded.

If you are mainly interested in Bitcoin, then you might like to follow Andreas M. Antonopoulos. You can find him on Twitter at @Aantonop, where his followers now number over 430 thousand. Clearly, this is someone who understands the steps needed to become a social media influencer.
While a lot of his tweets are on fairly advanced subjects, he also covers enough of the basics to make this an attractive option for newcomers. He also covers political news and technology in general, with his replies often notable for being scathing and sarcastic.
Jameson Lopp uses the Twitter handle @Lopp and has close to two hundred thousand followers. He covers a lot of ground that could be of interest to newcomers are well as to experienced cryptocurrency users. Away from social media, he has been involved in setting up the Casa wallet lately.
The Casa project raised over $2 million in investment funds from venture capital firms such as Lerer Hippeau, Compound and Boost VC. It is aimed at people with a lot of digital currency assets who are after the highest possible level of security to protect them.
