8.) @TradingPlays: Sometimes, all you need is a chart. You don’t care so much about an earnings report as you do about the market’s reaction. In this case, TradingPlays is your go-to follow. If a stock is moving after-hours because of an earnings release, you will most likely see a chart posted from him.

14.) @silverjet: A true swing trader, SilverJet is a great follow for two reasons. First, he shares earnings reminders that include who is reporting, when, and what their EPS estimate is. Second, he keeps the community up to date on the big movers and will alert you about the companies that are making big percentage moves on earnings.


15.) @lamonicabuzz: Paul La Monica is one of the best. He’s been on StockTwits since 2010 and is aScreen Shot 2015-10-14 at 1.35.17 PM pioneer in the world of social media and market news. He does it all.

16.) @WSConsensus: Wall Street Consensus is a great follow during earnings season. Why? Because they do two things particularly well. And most investors and traders will find useful. One: they share earnings calendars each week. These calendars will show you who reports and what the market expects. Two: they also share essential company upgrades and downgrades. This becomes particularly useful after earnings are reported – who downgraded and upgraded who.

19.) @TheStreet: We’re all familiar with The Street and when it comes to earnings, The Street is consistent and timely. During some weeks, over one hundred companies report earnings. While it’s nearly impossible to follow them all, The Street probably gets the closest to doing it. Each day you’re guaranteed to get earnings news and links delivered to you.
