If you think other accounts should be added, or if you are the owner of the account and would like to modify the description, please comment or get in touch.
Note that not all accounts focus 100% on foreign exchange, but this is natural. Markets are correlated, making also non-forex tweets relevant and some accounts provide other types of information, but the forex related ones are both prominent enough and most importantly: useful for forex traders.
