In recent years, it seems like everyone and everything is moving to the cloud. But what exactly does cloud computing encompass? Well, here's your chance to learn all about it from the top experts and leading companies, because we've compiled 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 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 cloud computing sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of cloud computing news and insight.
