John Troyer posted a list today of the Top 50 Overall VMware Influencers which is an algorithmic list that he created based on who is followed the most on Twitter by other “insiders.” I’m honored to be a part of that list and it reminded me that I had not updated my old list that I started in 2009 of my Top 100 VMware/virtualization people that you must follow on Twitter. The last time I updated that list was in 2014 so I went through it again, removed some people that don’t tweet that much anymore or whose tweets aren’t VMware related and also added some new people that I thought were worthy of being on the list.
Putting together these types of lists is always difficult, I try and research a bit to see who is fairly active on Twitter and tweets about VMware & virtualization stuff a good amount of time. While John’s list is based more on analytics, mine is purely based on people I know and deal with. It is entirely possible I missed some people though (I’m sure I did) that should be on the list, it wasn’t easy to limit it to 100 as there are tons of great people that tweet about VMware & virtualization but I did the best I could. So I apologize in advance if I missed someone that I probably should of included.
So without further ado, click the image below to see my Twitter list of the Top 100 VMware/virtualization people you MUST follow on Twitter.
Also here are some additional lists on the 1st 25 people that I followed on Twitter and also the Top 25 & 50 vBloggers. Enjoy!
