<Updated 12/16 12:30PM Version 1.1> – I’ve been wanting to compile a list of 100 SharePoint People to follow on Twitter and was hoping to have a statistical way of providing you the best or most influential SharePoint twitter people. Instead, I’ll give you my list and tell you that I think this represents a good 80% of the core stuff, while there is likely a bunch I’m missing I hope to extend the list and even have a scientific method of compiling a list in the future. Note I did purposely leave off people who have left SharePoint (sorry LLiu), and those who haven’t tweeted in months or only tweeted a couple of times (with the exception of a couple of Asian SharePoint MVPs at the bottom of the list as Asia isn’t well represented). I also gave preferential treatment to those who actually had pictures. I think this list is a good mix of community, strong SharePoint Twitter people, and MVPs who have tried to contribute to SharePoint on Twitter.
One I came past does show a simple counter for most followed like a virtual league TwitterLeague.com after I make sure I have those that care to be in this list, I can do a quick pass with that app to do more of a stack rank. Shown above on the left. Followers alone don’t show the power of influence like twinfluence shows, but # of followers does represent a significant following and in our field can show the relative influence of a microblogger.

SharePoint PMs that really LOVE SharePoint and fly under the radar on twitter. We may not want to randomize them as they are working on 14, but I hope to see them get more active as it gets more public. I see a few of these guys are fairly open about who they are in their profiles.
