29.Robert Peston, Journalist
The BBC's business editor is famous for a string of spectacular scoops since the start of the economic crisis in 2007, when he broke the news of Northern Rock's impending collapse; and for his remarkably reliable stories from inside News International at the height of the phone-hacking scandal. In each case, he broke many of them not on The 10 O'Clock News but on Twitter. Many other journalists follow him, and follow up his stories, which makes him one of the most influential reporters on the web.
