10 Agile Thought Leaders and Influencers to Follow on Twitter

temp-squashed

🔥 The list of the top 10 agile influencers to follow on Twitter was updated. You can see the new version here.

This is a select list of agile project management thought leaders and influencers on Twitter. We started with over 200 prominent accounts and we got it down to the top 10. We're transparent about the criteria for making this list, so here's how we did it. To qualify, Twitter accounts were required to meet all of the following characteristics:

  • account is for a person or a professional association,
  • account is 3 or more years old,
  • account is active (1 or more tweets in the last 30 days),
  • 1,000 or more tweets,
  • 7,000 or more followers, and
  • 90% or more of tweets have engagement (e.g., likes and retweets).

The list is sorted by engagement level, presented in descending order. In cases where multiple accounts have the same engagement level, the number of followers breaks the tie. Data source: Twitter. Data is as of September 9, 2020. Disclosure: Scott M. Graffius is the Founder and CEO of Exceptional PPM and PMO Solutions™. Source of screen shot images: respective Twitter accounts. Names, marks, and images are the property of their respective owners. Here are the top 10 accounts meeting all of the criteria described above.
