The SharePoint MVP Twitter List
On December 5th, 2011 I went through the list of 230 SharePoint MVPs and compiled them into a twitter list, located here: https://twitter.com/#!/EricaToelle/sharepointmvps
Many of them were not easy to find, and I may have missed some people. Please feel free to comment here or @EricaToelle if a correction is needed.
I encourage people to subscribe to this list as a easy way to see all MVP tweets, but also to follow individuals you find valuable. The world still looks at follower count as a measure of influence and you’ll want to give those authors proper kudos by following them. See the full list of SharePoint MVP Twitter accounts here: https://twitter.com/#!/EricaToelle/sharepointmvps/members
- I used the Microsoft MVP directory as the master list: https://mvp.support.microsoft.com/communities/MVP.aspx
- Searched for the following via Google: [Name from MVP site] SharePoint twitter
- Looked through the first page of results
- Looked at the bio and the first page of tweets for a mention of SharePoint or a related technology in order to determine if the account belonged to the correct person
- If nothing, I then looked for a twitter link on blog / website
- I am not sure how to track people that should be removed ongoing as there isn’t an easy way to compare the twitter list to the Microsoft list. If anyone has an idea about how to accomplish this, please let me know.
On an SEO side note, it was most difficult to locate people who did not have their proper name in the “name” field. Please also consider putting the English spelling on your name, as it appears on the MVP site, in the “description” area of your twitter bio if you tweet in a language other than English.
