A few months ago, we gave you a list of the top ten cloud computing twitter accounts to follow to turn your feed into a veritable treasure trove of insightful cloud news and information. We hope that our suggestions helped you achieve that, but we recognize that Twitter is a big, big place.
Twitter’s active user base is 243 million users— that’s nearly four times the population of the United Kingdom. It would be foolhardy to think that we could get all of the best cloud accounts in a brief ten-point list.
So we’re back at it, helping you feed the feed need with the best cloud news, thought leadership, and best practices.
Read ahead for six more essential Twitter accounts for thought leadership in cloud computing and don’t forget to follow me @cloudtechreview for cloud and information security news and best practices.
