55 Twitter handles every storage admin needs to follow

By Trevia Clark | | Software-defined Storage

We love Twitter here at Hedvig. It’s a great way to connect with fellow storage enthusiasts and learn from some of the top names in the business. But with more than 300 million users, it can be hard to figure out who exactly to follow. To help eliminate some guesswork, we’ve assembled a list of who we think are the most interesting and most active people to follow when it comes to storage and complementary technologies. We definitely find it worthwhile to listen to what these “twitterati” have to say and think that if you’re interested in storage tech, you’ll find them to be a great source of info.
