20 Tech People on Twitter with the Most Followers

TwitterFollowers

In high school, the tech geeks weren’t exactly popular. Despite my own affinity for Star Trek gadgetry and love for computers, I definitely kept all of it a secret from anyone at school. Now that I’m an adult (or kinda something like that), I can be more open about these things and share my love for all things tech to all corners of the world. And, by “world,” I mean my roommate, his girlfriend, and all my glorious Twitter followers.

From partners at venture funds and current CEOs of tech giants, to tech reporters and generally interesting people who talk about real-world applications of in-game tech, check out these 20 people who have made tech-speak so cool that they’ve all acquired over a million followers on Twitter.
