Celebrities are legion on Twitter, but if there’s one tech media darling, it’s Apple. This company and its products have fame, followers and all the sexiness any movie star could ask for. Sure, there are haters, but Apple fans are devoted, and Apple’s ability to build a consistent and solid user experience has won its products some die-hard devotees. We combed through Twitter for some of the top sources for Apple news, reviews, information and insight. Fanbois, this one’s for you.
Why this list?
Well, it's based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity, the opinions of other Apple experts and our own subjective judgment.
One note: Some influential voices are not included, either because they don't have active Twitter accounts, or they only tweet about Apple sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of Apple news and insight. While no list will ever be 100 percent on-topic, we aim to eliminate those who tweet on a wider range of subjects and focus on those who tweet mostly about Apple.
Did we miss somebody? Let us know.
