Damien Fahy named in top 25 most influential personal finance tweeters
Damien Fahy founder of Moneytothemasses.com has been named in the top 25 most influential personal finance tweeters in the UK by the social media analytics website Peer Index. Interestingly he is one of the few people to make the list who is not a journalist with a national broadcaster or newspaper.
The Peer Index study of around 9,000 personal finance journalists, bloggers and members of the public looked at which Twitter users were being talked about, retweeted and were influencing discussions and opinions in the world of personal finance. The index uses a ranking system that reflects the influence of people tweeting about money and personal finance and how this influence is reflected across social media.
Damien who tweets at @money2themasses has, this year, published his first book 30 Day Money Plan: Take control of your finances in just 5 minutes a day as well as introduced a weekly podcast How to make it, How to save it, How to spend it .
