The .NET, Windows & Open Innovation Conference BASTA! proudly presents the top 20 social influencers regarding the Microsoft and .NET World. All influential people have something in common: they can spread ideas faster and better than anyone else. We are aware that following those people has a handful of perks, including staying on top of the latest news and trends. Therefore, we decided to concoct a list of Twitter accounts all Microsoft and .NET fans should follow.
If we missed anybody, it has nothing to do with the fact that we don’t think that they are just as important or shareworthy as any person on this list.
We congratulate everyone who made it into this list. If you click on the name or picture of each speaker you will be redirected to their twitter profile where you’ll find the useful information they share daily.
We first generated a list of one thousand .NET-related Twitter accounts (including all accounts that are related to the world of Microsoft in their bio or in any of their tweets.)
To score the account and rank them accordingly, we analyzed their social authority and reach using two key metrics: MozRank and Klout.
Moz Social Authority Score: Social Authority score is composed of:
- The retweet rate of users’ last few hundred tweets.
- The recency of those tweets.
- A retweet-based model trained on user profile data.

Klout Score: Klout uses more than 400 signals from eight different networks to update the Klout Score daily. It’s mainly based on the ratio of reactions a user generates compared to the amount of content he shares. Read more at the Klout score blog.
