These are the top 20 big data thought leaders. Haydn Shaughnessy over at Forbes put together this fantastic list of the major influencers in the big data world. From there, I found their twitter accounts or blogs and linked them up to their names. They are not defined so much by how many followers they have but rather by the quality and activity of their blog posts and tweets. The activity of these leaders represents the rich diversity and power of big data innovation. Enjoy!
