The official Twitter prediction for today’s non-farm payrolls report is 92K.

This was based on 74 Twitter guesses using the hashtag #NFPGuesses through 8:05 a.m.

Meanwhile….

Wall Street sell-side analysts forecasts today’s headline non-farm payrolls number will top last month’s 69,000 read, with the economy expanding by some 100K new jobs.

Separately, the Business Insider house model forecasts payroll gains of 90,000, below the Street’s consensus.

The last time Business Insider tallied this number, the consensus Twitter estimate was 121K, which was ultimately above the actual 69K print — but it was closer than both the BI model and Wall Street’s consensus estimates.
