Open Source: Top Feeds To Follow on Twitter

Why Trust Techopedia

Get the latest updates on open source from these influencers on Twitter.

Open source opens up a world of opportunity for developers. Because of its lack of restrictions, developers have the freedom to use the code in any way they see fit. Here’s your chance to learn all about open source from the top experts in the field, because we’ve compiled a list of the most influential feeds that 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 open source sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of open source news and insight.
