The FinTwit community on X is notorious for a lack of accountability.

Platform Characteristics

❌ Deleting Bad Picks

By far the easiest way to keep a pristine track record is to delete bad tweets. There are few ways to recover deleted tweets so there is little risk of getting caught. Many X accounts automatically delete tweets over a few weeks old out of precaution and because they have no intention of being held to account.

❌ Playing Both Sides

A common strategy often combined with deleting bad picks; is to play both sides of a trade. Pairs of posts are tweeted, separating the pro's and con's into separate tweets; capitalizing under the cover of X's character limit. Once a outcome is known, the wrong side of the trade's tweet is deleted, only leaving a fully correct prediction.

❌ Spam Bots

These play off of survivorship bias. Bot accounts with fake followers will make generic market calls in every sort of permutation.
It takes 2N accounts to make N perfect market calls, and X has 1.5 Million new accounts created every day.
