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