IoT: Experts to Follow on Twitter


Want to connect with the most influential voices talking about the Internet of Things? Follow this group on Twitter.

Internet of Things. If you’ve been listening, it’s sounding more like Internet of Everything. And it’s such a huge subject that it’s tough to separate marketing fluff from expert opinion. So, we decided to compile a list of the most influential voices who are talking about it on Twitter.

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 big data 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 IoT sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of IoT news and insight.
