If you love personal finance as a topic but have not explored Malaysian Twitter yet, do I have a treat for you today.
Following my popular personal finance Instagrammers in Malaysia article, I thought I’d compile the Twitter version pulak. Here are some Malaysia-based personal finance Twitter accounts you definitely should follow.
Note that I have intentionally excludedother personal finance thought leaders in Malaysia who don’t use Twitter as their main engagement channel (bloggers, Instagrammers etc). I also exclude Twitter accounts maintained by finance-related companies and media.
This names in this list links directly to their Twitter accounts and appear in no particular order. If I missed out anyone, do let me know (or leave a comment with a link to the profile!)
Most of my traffic is organic (ie came from Uncle Google). I expected finance terms, sure, but I was also surprised by some search terms people use that end up here! I did not expect this for a finance website!
Here are some the 10 types of people who read Ringgit Oh Ringgit. Thanks korang sayang korang <3
Welcome to my new website, take 2! Yep, it’s still about personal finance, my favorite subject.
For those of you who don’t know, I used to write about personal finance under chickenflossbun.com. I had a mascot and everything. But that website was short-lived.
Because was I a nOob. After a year, I renewed my domain name but deleted the hosting plan. One day I went to the website and find that it was… gone. My face was like 0_0;;; I was going to correct the mistake and pay for the hosting plan, but when GoDaddy was contacted, they wanted USD150 just to restore it. Oh, capitalism… you bleeping bleep.
Seriously, you bleep bleep bleep bleep. Bleep.
Anyway, enjoy this second attempt. Some pages are still under construction but it’s going to be better than ever. So don’t be a bleep and share my content if you find it helpful, okay?
I found a really cool blog yesterday. Dividend Magic is the pseudonym for a passionate Malaysian stock investor, who I found out is just 26 years old. He posts about the performances of the companies he bought stocks from, which is fascinating. There’s details about dividends received, goody bags from some companies, and annual reports.
Bonus: he covers his personal information with small bottles of liquor, and toys (Iron Man figure and a small Vespa), which cracks me up. I guess he was taking pictures, and went like, “hmm, better cover my name/address” and just looked around and took whatever’s closest to him hahahah
Look. Omg so cute I kenot.
Because stocks always feel so intimidating, it’s nice to find somewhere to get that human touch, that human explanation, without unnecessary bombastic words and jargon. This definitely made my day 🙂
