I'm planning an empirical study on the impact of social media on the stock market. Therefore I would like to pick out several people who could have a big impact with their posts on social media. However, I am unsure which people I should include in the analysis. Elon Musk or Cathie Wood could be two examples.

Does anyone have any other suggestions? Or does anyone know a list of people who might be eligible?

I think asking people for a list here may lead to sample bias or a small sample set.

If you want a more replicable approach, you could simply take the top influencers based on followers or retweets on social media platforms like Twitter, Stocktwits, etc.
