10 Agile Thought Leaders and Influencers to Follow on Twitter

temp-squashed

🔥 The top 10 list was updated. The latest version is 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.

Top 10 Agile Thought Leaders and Influencers to Follow on Twitter: Update for 2022

TOP 10 AGILE THOUGHT LEADERS AND INFLUENCERS TO FOLLOW ON TWITTER IN 2022 - EXC - LR - SQ

If you're involved or interested in agile, this article lists top agile thought leaders and influencers you may want to follow on Twitter.

We started with over 300 experts with Twitter accounts and progressively refined it down to the top 10. We're transparent about the criteria and calculations for making this list, so here's how we did it. To qualify, Twitter accounts were required to meet all of the following six characteristics:

  • Account is for a person or a professional association,
  • Account is 3 or more years old,
  • Account is active (defined as 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 accounts meeting the above qualifications were ranked ordered and weighted on three factors:

  • Number of followers (weighted at 1x),
  • Number of tweets in the last 30 days (weighted at 1x), and
  • Percent of tweets with engagement (because this reflects the effectiveness of tweets, and to what degree they are connecting with followers, it was weighted higher—at 3x).

The top 10 accounts based on the criteria and calculations follow.

Notes: The data source is Twitter, and the data was collected on December 9, 2021. Disclosure: Scott M. Graffius is the 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.
