As we found out from EE Times' recent Mind of the Engineer survey, more and more engineers are getting information from Twitter and social media, so I decided to put together a list containing some of the best people and companies in electronics to follow on Twitter.
I chose these influencers based on a combination of Klout, Peek Analytics, and good old-fashioned editorial judgment. So, if you are on Twitter, I recommend you follow the engineers in this list and if not, go to EE Times to see 10 good reasons to join Twitter today.
Appreciate this list, Nicholas. It's always good also for those of us writing for Design News to keep up with the latest information from the industry's top talents and visionaries. Going to Twitter now to start following...
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment.
