Good list. I'm personally grateful for the up-to-the-minute @nigroeneveld and the Eastern focused @RedDragon1949.
At the risk of being self serving: @threatpost is really worth following.
This is just a selection of tweeters, we've tried to create a list that offer a balance of opinion. There are plenty more who could/should have been on the list like @mikko. As with all "top 10" lists they're very subjective. Anyone have any other suggestions for tweeters who should be on the list?
