V3 has put together the Top 100 Technology Tweeters, for those of you new to Twitter, or looking for some inspiration on who to follow. Today we're revealing the Top 10 IT leaders on Twitter.
For our technology professionals list, we looked for people working in IT management roles who can offer useful advice to their peers and insight into the latest technologies affecting different sectors.
Paul Coby, director of IT at John Lewis @PaulCoby
Paul Coby offers interesting technology insight across three different sectors - retail, aviation and skills - on his Twitter account.
Adam Gerrard, LateRooms group CIO @CIO_Adam
Previously group CIO at Avis Europe and head of IT at Thomas Cook, Adam Gerrard provides a useful resource on the latest tech stories relevant to IT chiefs, and also shows a healthy understanding of the value of social media, being a big fan of Foursquare.
Jos Creese, Hampshire CIO @JosCreese
As IT chief for Hampshire and former president of public sector body Socitm, follow Jos Creese to keep up with all the latest on government IT.
Oliver Bussmann, SAP CIO @sapcio
Oliver Bussmann should prove a useful follow for anyone whose firm is currently running SAP products, as he offers regular updates on its technology and is a user himself. As a big Apple follower, his tweets are also a good indicator of Apple's rise in the enterprise.
Sue Black, senior research associate in software engineering at UCL @Dr_Black
To say that Sue Black is a Twitter fan would be a slight understatement, often posting multiple tweets every hour. Follow Sue for her updates on everything from programming to virtualisation to cloud computing.
Paul Cheesbrough, News International CIO @paulcheesbrough
Paul has been a bit quiet of late, no doubt due to larger issues at News International, but is usually a good source of information and opinions on the latest technology.
Chris Kemp, OpenStack founder and former NASA CTO @Kemp
Chris Kemp was responsible for NASA's Nebula cloud computing project, and as such is a good person to follow for all the latest cloud updates.
Mike Gascoyne, Team Lotus CTO @MikeGascoyne
Follow Mike for some interesting insight into managing technology in a high-pressure industry like motor sport, and how his team approaches problem fixing.
Nick Sharratt, IT manager at University of Plymouth @sputuk
Nick Sharratt is a good person to follow for information on issues affecting university IT. He also tweets on the latest tech, such as apps and Google+.
Steven Patterson, IT manager at Southampton University @srpnor
Another university tech pro, follow Steven for his opinions on a varied mix of technologies from spam to Macs to Unix.
