Many of us in the virtualization community are tweeting. What do we tweet about? Lot’s of different things, storage, software, books, reviews, #FFs (Google it if you don’t know), new blog posts, can’t miss reads, real-time updates and many more things pertaining to virtualization. To stay on top of what’s going on in our community, Twitter has become a great ally. At events like VMworld and other tech conferences, Twitter gives the person who couldn’t attend a running commentary of what’s going on there, pictures, videos and links to blog posts about the event. If you participate in the community already but don’t tweet, join Twitter and take a look at what you’ve been missing. To get you started off on the right foot, here is a list of some vTwitter accounts that you absolutely should be following and their respective fields of expertise.

    1. Yes, agreed, those are great… @Mike_Laverick is a great account, oversight on my part. @Rimmergram puts out good stuff, and I think we all know how hard @SFoskett works… Thanks for the note.

  1. Just wanted to share @vmwarepress. As the official publisher of VMware books and training materials, we just published a new Site Recovery Manager 5.0 title by @Mike_Laverick (mentioned above). Books also in the works from @cody_bunch @MostafaVMW and others. We’ll be ramping up shared content articles, videos and interviews in 2012. Hope to connect with you all!
