The Social influencers in DevOps list was generated by analyzing thousands of Twitter accounts extracting the MozRank  and Klout scores which rank both quality and influence.

The analysis ranks the top accounts according to their social influence, although interestingly enough, not all household names of DevOps evangelists are on the list.

Congratulations to all influencers who made it into our top 20. Click on each username to visit their Twitter accounts.
