Influencers 2017

This year, a number of "pure-play" IoT influencers continued to replace highly influential individuals who just include IoT topics in their technology posts. Twitter activity continues to factor heavily in our rankings, particularly because of the "breaking news" aspect of so much that is going on in the IoT space. Organizations that hold events, such as developer conferences, are considered particularly influential.
