Carl Icahn on the now very famous Twitter feed follows only 5 individuals all of whom are respected Business Journalists. They are
Nathan Vardi Forbes Reporter @nathanvardi
Steven Bertoni Forbes Associate Editor @StevenBertoni
DAVID FABER CNBC @davidfaber
Trish Regan Anchor & Editor at Large BloombergTV @trish_regan
Scott Wapner CNBC @ScottWapnerCNBC
Communication is nuanced process. These five scribes are all reputable and work for reputable news organizations. Carl Icahn has close to 53K of followers. In aggregate these five have 86K in followers. The Forbes guys are really low. Print vs television maybe? So the relative followers on Twitter has nothing to do with it. So watch and listen and see if these guys are just newshounds or can they be played in some fashion.
George Gutowski writes from a caveat emptor perspective. He can be followed on Twitter @financialskepti To the best of his knowledge Carl Icahn does not follow him on Twitter. But if you want you can follow Carl_C_Icahn. I’m sure every Barracuda class action lawyer is.
