7 Twitter Feeds every SQL Server DBA should follow


I love the immediacy of Twitter. It can be casual or in depth. This blog post is about organising your Twitter feeds to include the best news on Twitter about SQL Server.

Some of the best SQL Server information on the internet is available via Twitter feeds. TopSQLexperts may drop in a casual 140 word message – pointing to a great article.

What I’m saying is: drop the @katyperry , @justinbieber , @taylorswift13 feeds and follow some of the best voices in the SQL Server community.

Some of these Twitter feeds are Microsoft based others are independent .
