With more and more people turning to social media for their news fix, Twitter has become a hotbed for discussion and debate on the current state, and future, of mobile payments and FinTech.
But, with a seemingly infinite number of accounts and opinions out there, keeping up with all things payments via Twitter can be quite an undertaking.
To help, we’ve put together a list of ten of our favorite twitter feeds to follow for the latest news and best analysis.

Also known as ‘King of Retweets’, Chris scours Twitter so you don’t have to, providing you with the all the latest mobile payments news, one retweet at a time.
