I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Twitter for the last few years, but I’ve finally found my ideal Twitter setup: using Mailbrew to email me the most popular tweets from my favorite people.
Even though they cover different topics, the common thread amongst my favorite Twitter follows is that they’re all deep and free thinkers.
Let’s jump into the list!
1. Noah Smith – Bloomberg Economics Writer
Noah is a thoughtful, deep thinker who covers economics, society, politics, COVID, and much more!
2. Paul Graham – Founder, Y-Combinator & Writer
Paul is one of my favorite thinkers, and I love how he blends insightful viewpoints on entrepreneurship and life.
3. Mark Manson – Bestselling Psychology Author
Mark is constantly dropping knowledge bombs about how to live a better life and how to understand why some things are the way they are.
4. David Perell – Writer, Learner, Entrepreneur
David tweets lots of great nuggets about writing, learning, and building businesses!
This is the only account I’ve featured that isn’t a person; it’s a collection of quotes about life. And it’s my favorite quote account.
6. Shane Parrish – Founder, Farnam Street
Shane shares great insights into what he describes as “mastering the best of what other people have already figured out.”
7. Nate Silver – Founder FiveThirtyEight
Nate provides fascinating perspectives on stats and how they relate to society, politics, and COVID.
8. Nat Eliason – Entrepreneur & Life Philospher
Nat is one of my favorite thinkers and is constantly working on and thinking about interesting, cutting-edge projects.
9. Ana Lorena Fabrega – Education Futurist
Ana is my favorite education-related thinker. She has unparalleled insights into how we should re-invent the educational system.

Balaji tweets about crypto, the future, and entrepreneurship. He has lots of controversial and counter-culture takes that are extremely thought-provoking.
