Everyone who has been in crypto for more than a few months will tell you that Twitter is a place where all the crypto news and alpha are born — you just need to know who to follow. Indeed, there’s no media that is as up-to-date on all things web3 and blockchain than Twitter, but there’s also a downside to this — namely a sizeable number of engagement farmers, paid shillers, and scammers, who oftentimes make it difficult to filter through all the noise on the platform.
To help you cut through the clutter, we started a series of articles where we list the biggest crypto influencers on twitter for you to follow, starting from micro-influencers under 5,000 followers up to industry leaders. This is the second article of our series that will guide you through the twitchy and bizarre world of CT, where we feature accounts below 10k, and we will gradually move to crypto personalities with a larger follower count in the next edition, so stay tuned!
And in case you haven’t read Part 1 of the series — do read it today: Top 10 Crypto Twitter influencers under 5,000 Followers
Now, these are the best CT personalities and influencers below 10k, along with their followers count at the time of writing, Twitter handles, and a brief summary of what makes each one so special.
