The Security experts I follow on Twitter

My primary interests are cloud, social media, and security. Anything related to information, web, data, and computer security would attract my attentions. So I spent a lot of time to try to find what security experts research on and are interested in. So I compiled my own list of security experts. I watch their tweets daily and learn what they blog and talk about. It is a public list and you are free to follow (@fangfeng88/security). Here is the top 30 in the list (format is “name | @handle: blog site | job”):
